Just wondering if anyone on the list was running amavisd, or amavis-perl,
I hadn't received a response as yet, and I've been working on this for the 
last three weeks now, I'm really desparte.
I'm currently receiving the openmailer: insufficient privileges to change gid,
error message,  even though my /bin/usr/procmail is setuid
/usr/bin/procmail	root	root	-rwsr-xr-x

Still going at this....

Should the temp directories ie /var/amavis/amavis-XXXXXXXX be owned by amavis,
group amavis, or owned by root, and group amavis. They always comes out as 700
but is incorrect for amavis. What sets up the ownership and permissions on 
this directory.

I haven't been able to get over this problem for the past couple of days...

Also, can some one out there using sendmail 8.11, procmail, and amavisd, the 
lastest snapshot, tell me there permissions for the following files. (btw, I
run with the amavis user, amavis. Sendmail has no RunAsUser DefaultUser set)


This is on a redhat 6.2 system.

I have the following permissions on certain directories

/var/amavis		amavis	amavis	drwx------
/var/spool/mqamavis	amavis	root	drwxrwxr-x
/var/spool/mqueue	amavis	root	drwxrwxr-x

If you want to see what error messages I'm getting, take a look a past posts.
