Hi:

I've sendmail 8.9.3 running on RH 6.0. If I try to restart the
daemon, it exits immediately. Looking up the status gives me
the foll info:

[root@test_bed /]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail status
sendmail dead but subsys locked
[root@test_bed /]#

/var/log/maillog has the foll entries:

Nov 22 10:50:08 euler sendmail[953]: starting daemon
(8.9.3): SMTP+queueing@01:00:00

Nov 22 10:50:08 euler
sendmail[953]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): opendaemonsocket: cannot
bind: Permission denied

Nov 22 10:50:08 euler sendmail[953]: problem creating SMTP socket

Nov 22 10:50:08 euler
sendmail[953]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): opendaemonsocket: server SMTP socket
wedged: exiting

Could it be a problem of permissions?

Could anyone pls throw some light on how to fix this problem?
Thanks very much.
