Re: Email error message
: Hello, I'm getting this message trying to send mail from a form I'm
: sending over the browser using the mail() function:
: WARNING: RunAsUser for MSP ignored, check group ids (egid=0, want=51)
: Does anyone know what this is telling me?
I think that that is sendmail talking. Sendmail is not set up correctly.
Sendmail runs in two modes for security. The root mode is only used for
handling network traffic. Local mail is handled using a different id and
a different mail queue. I think sendmail is telling you that is wasn't
able to run the local copy correctly, which is a security risk (a pretty
low level risk I think actually, these days, but still a problem over
This will effect mail you are submitting to sendmail.
I am not sure whether this means sendmail was able to handle the mail or
had to give up.
If you are responsible for sendmail then you need to read the file called
SECURITY that comes with the sendmail source code.
Otherwise the sys admin should read that file.
