MAILX/SENDMAIL ISSUES

I have just applied the Dec Gold pack to my Hp-UX 11.11 9000 box. Now Mailx doesn't work. I get the below error in my mail.log:

Dec 18 17:34:56 anvidev2 sendmail[27123]: mBINYut1027123: localhost [127.0.0.1] did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection to stdin


and the direct error I get while trying to use mailx is :
"Alias0" : unsafe map file /etc/mail/aliases.db Permission denied.

I am lost here. I ahve checked all permissions on resolv.conf, aliases, aliases.db, mqueue.

Anyone have any other idea's as to what this may be?

"Alias0": unsafe map file /etc/mail/aliases.db Permission denied.

What are the permissions of /etc/mail/aliases.db, /etc/mail and /etc?

Shalom,

Fix the bad entry in the access file

Recompile the sendmail daemon using the m4 binary and restart the sendmail daemon.
