Question How To configure Mail program?

Hi All,
We have 6 RHEL4 Linux servers in the company. Some users use Mail program to send emails.
srv1, srv2 and srv3 can send email normally.
srv4, srv5 and srv6 no.
So.. I was searching for an How To document, in order to check all the configurations on the various servers for the program Mail.
The only file I checked is mail.rc, and it's the same on all 6 servers.

Moreover.. when I try to send mails from the srv4, I receive the following error message:
WARNING: RunAsUser for MSP ignored, check group ids (egid=611, want=51)
can not chdir(/var/spool/clientmqueue/): Permission denied
Program mode requires special privileges, e.g., root or TrustedUser.

Any help is welcome. Thank You!!

What MTA are you running and how are you trying to send this test email?
