Check 'dmesg' after bootup, your other syslogs like /var/log/kernel, /var/log/messages, or if it's a service that's failing, try the respective daemon logs?

Is /etc/mail/trusted-users a file or directory? Assuming it's a directory, it sound like you need to

chmod o-w /etc/mail/trusted-users

In terms of daemon logs, the individual services have their own logs or log groups, so failed mail related services will log to maillog, samba services log to the samba directory, etc.

I see /etc/mail/trusted-users is a file. Here's what it should look like

Quote:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 127 Mar 15 2007 trusted-users
so chmod 644 /etc/mail/trusted-users

What did you do to change it?

That probably wasn't the best idea - the permissions within /etc/mail were OK. You may need to set them back to 644


Can you please post

ls -la /etc/mail

and

ls -Z /etc/mail
