Note the last line: I already posted a date/time setting problem in a
seperate thread.
Date/Time randomly changes either in the future or in the past upon a
reboot and
no, it's not the BIOS battery - it is brand new!

I checked the permissions in /etc/mail and all of the file there shows
no group writable permissions:

Hmm... what seems to be the problem here?

I have fixed my clock issues and find that the above error message
really does not have much to do with the NTP or local clock - and the
sendmail problem still persists.

I have not had this issue before in the many months I have run F8
including the inception of F9 until some point when the latest
sendmail update was last issued.

What I find at this point are the 4 files that are problematic with the
latest sendmail updates:

1) /etc/mail/local-host-names (I use this for virtual domains)
2) /etc/mail/trusted-users  (I use this for trusted users)
3) /var/run/spamass-milter/spamass-milter.sock (Spamassasin)
4) /var/run/clamav-milter/clamav.sock  (AntiVirus)

In all the above 4 files, sendmail is complaining of a Group-Writable issue
and I have checked many times that this is not the issue at all, that none of the parent directories nor the file itself has any group writes set. I have commented out the specific 4 lines in the sendmail.cf files and was able to get sendmail running again but without the features I need. What I am not clear of, is if this is a SELinux
issue or not.  I tried setenforce 0 and this did not help.

These problems have not been resolved at this point.

Advice please?

Thanks!
Dan
