Issue #2270 has been updated by Max Herrgard.

It cannot drop root privileges because you have no "mail" user. So you can either add one, or change #define DMA_ROOT_USER   "mail" in libexec/dma/dma.h to use "mailnull", which is an user we have for sendmail.

Swildner seemed to think we should change drop group to mailnull as well. We have both mail and mailnull groups.

files" now that virtualtable is gone.

- Sending an email using "mail" as root throws this error, which appears to
be coming from dma:
send-mail: cannot drop root privileges: unknown error:
