Temporary email problems: Sunday afternoon (Feb 19)

From: Russell McOrmond <russell@flora.ca>
Date: Mon, 20 Feb 2006 10:49:39 -0500 (EST)

   While doing regular maintenance I caused a problem on both inbound mail 
servers (mail.flora.ca and mail2.flora.ca) which caused messages to 
bounce.  I was out most of the afternoon and only noticed the problem 
after 17:00 when I came home.

   Some messages might have bounced during that time.

Technical:  I wanted to check sendmail config files into CVS.  To do this 
I made the directory "group writeable" rather than checking things in as 
'root', but forgot that Sendmail really doesn't like that.  Sendmail was 
noticing the group writeable directory and refusing mail.
