You have a user called "mail", which has UID 8 and GID 12, and a group called
"mail", which I assume has a GID of 12 - but have you actually checked that
this is the case? Given that the user is UID 8, the GID might also be 8, so
despite the names above, the effective GID of 12 is unable to access the
ls -aln /var/spool|grep clientmqueue
If you get:
drwxrwx--- 2 8 12 4096 Feb 28 13:13 clientmqueue
Then all should be well.
However, I suspect you will get:
drwxrwx--- 2 8 8 4096 Feb 28 13:13 clientmqueue
The fix is to change the DefaultUser option in the Sendmail config to use the
correct GID number.
