Re: [vox-tech] Cyrus-imap and qmail -- RESOLVED

Hi All:

I wrote this a while back, and I thought I would post my resolution:

Permissions were the problem the entire time (another error I was
getting was deferral: standard in must be a tty).  All I needed to do
was a) run qmail-smtpd as cyrus <or> b) run deliver as suid cyrus (this
is what I did, for simplicity's sake, and maybe a security hole).  The
problem was that lmtpd only accepts from cyrus user, and since
qmail-smtpd runs as qmails (as per the lwq install instructions), it
was erroring out.

Hope that helps someone besides myself,

Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders 
of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple 
matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist 
dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. 
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding 
of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they 
are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, 
and exposing the country to greater danger.
