Problem in sending mail
When I send mail to another aix node by
After the compeletion of the process, I get the error message
Can't create transcript file ./xfh32JMhl01671: Permission denied
It is observed that mail is not send
Can anybody help me?
i am not sure but i think you need write access to that file its complaining about.
It is the /var/spool/mail direcory, that handles the mail
In some machines mail is working
In some other machines with the same permisiions, mail is not working.
It is observed that AIX 4.3 has no such problem.
All the AIX 5.2 boxes have this problem.
Is it a bug with AIX 5.2?
I would check that the directory /var/spool/ directories.
the mail directory is for the inboxes, mqueue is for processing mail
On my system (mail is working) I have the following permissions:
michael@x054:[/usr/include]ls -ld /var/spool/m*
drwxrwxr-x 2 bin mail 4096 May 25 17:32 /var/spool/mail
drwxrwx--- 2 root system 256 May 27 16:13 /var/spool/mqueue
Thank u Micheal
In my machines owner of mqueue directory was bin
I changed it to root
Now I can send mail to a user in the same host.
But mail user1@host1
returns the mail
Can u send mail to another host in the NW as an ordinary user?
Any suggestion ?
