Hi, List,

I am getting the following error message in my logs:

Jan 17 14:50:44 smtp sendmail[3455]: [ID 801593 mail.crit] j0HJG6kr001624:
SYSERR(root): makeconnection_ds: unsafe domain socket /var/imap/socket/lmtp
Jan 17 14:50:44 smtp sendmail[3455]: [ID 801593] j0HJG6kr001624:
to=< at>, delay=03:34:37, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=cyrusv2,
pri=1470639, relay=localhost, dsn=4.3.5, stat=Deferred: Group writable
directory is a valid local email address, set up for dummy testing. What is
unsafe domain socket?

Also, the file /var/imap/socket/lmtp was set as owner root group root by the
install/setup. Should this be cyrus/mail?

Any clues would be most helpful.
