i have just installed sendmail and now i want to run mimedefang with it.
I think my configuration is ok and should work, but when sendmail starts
sending a message I get this error in the log file:

Initializing SMTP port (sendmail)451 4.0.0 /etc/sendmail.cf: line 1580:
Xmimedefang: local socket name /var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang.sock
unsafe: Permission denied

Here are the directory permissions:

drwxr-x--- 2 defang defang 48 2007-03-06 10:05 MD-Quarantine
drwxr-x--- 2 defang defang 208 2007-03-06 10:25 MIMEDefang

Do you have any ideas?

Thanks a lot
Greetings Daniel
