    Hello there,

    Before my box was doing fine with no problem but since I do the upgraded I've noticed that all of the domains under my box couldn't send or receive mail from webmail. I've tried to send a message, I received:

    There was an error sending your message: sendmail [/usr/sbin/sendmail] not executable

    I then looked into WHM and seeing that there were lot of email waiting to delivery but somehow it still in the queries, why? I tried to use the third party to check and send mail it work with no problem.

    Could someone please help!

    Thanks!

    It is likely that the permission somehow was changed/modified. Change the permission to 755 and see if that helps.

    Go on, have a guess
    The actual permissions for /usr/sbin/sendmail are:

    chmod +x /usr/sbin/sendmail
    chmod g+s /usr/sbin/sendmail
    chown root:mailtrap /usr/sbin/sendmail

    If you don't have a /usr/sbin/sendmail then you should run:

    /scripts/updatenow
    /scripts/eximup --force

    No idea. I would expect it to be OK fro now on, though.
