savemail: cannot save rejected email anywhere

Hi All,

I have a problem with send mail, I'm getting this following error message
Jun 30 16:32:34 INSS sendmail[2072]: QAA02072: SYSERR(root): savemail: cannot save rejected email anywhere: Permission denied.

What's wrong with it and how to correct this.

Thanks

Re: savemail: cannot save rejected email anywhere

Check for ownership and permissions. Rejected email is sent back to the user and to /var/tmp/dead.letter. And it's not able to do that due to wrong permission or ownership of some directories/files.

1) /var/mail should be 775 bin:mail
2) /var/mail/root should be 660 root:mail
3) /var/mail/ should be 660 :mail
4) /var/tmp should be 777 so that "dead.letter" can be writen to this directory.
