I'm using LinuxMandrake 7.2 with sendmail-8.11.0-3mdk and procmail-3.14-3mdk.
Now I just want some mails being forwarded from one user to an other.
I created a .procmailrc file but the mails won't be forwarded. I get the
following errors in the logs:
procmail: Couldn't determine implicit lockfile from "/usr/sbin/sendmail"
procmail: Error while writing to "/usr/sbin/sendmail"
Then in the sendmail logs I have these errors:
May 28 13:25:55 localhost sendmail: f4SBPtu01186: SYSERR(am): Can't
create transcript file ./xff4SBPtu01186: Permission denied
May 28 13:25:57 localhost sendmail: f4SBPtu01186: SYSERR(am): Cannot
create ./dff4SBPtu01186: Permission denied
May 28 13:25:57 localhost sendmail: f4SBPtu01186: SYSERR(am): queueup:
cannot create queue temp file ./tff4SBPtu01186, uid=501: Permission denied
I also have problems when trying to send mails using /usr/sbin/sendmail. It
simply does not work. Of course sending mail to port 25 will work. I assume
that procmail uses /usr/sbin/sendmail to forward mail an does not connect to
port 25. Has anyone a solution for me? I suppose that some permissons are
wrong, but have no idea what to change and I do not want to lower security.
Can anyone help me PLZ?
