Sendmail and Cyrus IMAP

    I have searched the archives and I am either blind or can't read but
here is my problem.

    I am running Sendmail 8.12.10 on Solaris 8 and I am trying to get mail
delivered to Cyrus IMAP 2.2.3.  I added to my servers .mc file as
instructed.  When I place the newly built in place and restart
sendmail I get the following error:

Jan 29 17:51:08 defiant sendmail[24960]: [ID 801593 mail.crit]
i0TMp5hO024957: SYSERR(root): makeconnection_ds: unsafe domain socket
Jan 29 17:51:08 defiant sendmail[24960]: [ID 801593]
i0TMp5hO024957: to=<ppbenac at>, delay=00:00:02, xdelay=00:00:00,
mailer=cyrus, pri=230926, relay=localhost, dsn=4.3.5, stat=Deferred: No such
file or directory

    I assume the unsafe domain socket is /var/imap/socket/lmtp, however all
I see is lmtpunix-0.lock in /var/imap/socket.  Both my cyrus.conf and
imapd.conf are configured for /var/imap/socket/lmtp and /var/imap/socket is
not group writable.  This directory is owned by cyrus and has mail as it's

     Can someone on this list point me in the right direction?
