My problem with this same setup seemed to be the mqueue.in
permissions. Mine were
-rw-r----- 1 root smmsp
What are yours?
My temporary solution - a cron job that chowns the files.
My long term solution - postfix.
But if anyone can suggest a medium term solution, probably
involving some obscure sendmail security setting, that would be great
