    Anyone have some bright ideas on how to give users with jailroot access to sendmail (exim)? I've got a bunch of customers complaining that the path noted in cPanel doesn't exist when they SSH in (confirmed it's only a problem on those with the jailroot shell). I'd prefer to not have to copy exim/sendmail to the /usr/bin directory, thereby duplicating binaries.

    cd /usr/bin
    ln -s /path/to/sendmail sendmail

    Guess again. If the path to exim doesn't exist in the jailroot shell, creating a symbolic link will do nothing.

    Nick, is this ever going to get addressed?!?! We really need the features pointed out in the cPanel to be functional in the shell. This includes things like sendmail as well as traceroute (both reside in /usr/sbin/).

    Check on this.

    -myshell-2.05b$ /usr/sbin/sendmail
    exim: neither action flags nor mail addresses given

    -myshell-2.05b$ /usr/sbin/exim
    exim: neither action flags nor mail addresses given

    (this is a jailed shell I just didn't like the name) :D
