permissions in

I've installed a MS with a Sendmail. The sendmail is
running as root (as default) and I'd set the MS
running as smmtp.smmtp, as default is run as root

Well, the problem I have is that the messages queued
by sendmail in have the permissions
root.smmtp with 700. So MS is not able to read and
process them.

Which user should I use to execute MS? and Sendmail?
how can configure them?

Thanks in advance.
