I read this tread, great idee to add a spam feature.
so i do it, install with the ports.

I work with sendmail, no mysql db behind.
make install done.

chance the Mlocal Setting, add aliases, and restart sendmail.

Now Message it's comming up to me, but when i send a email to
spam-xx at xxx.xx, it's now comming:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|'/usr/local/bin/dspam' --user 'spamtest' --addspam"
    (reason: 126)
    (expanded from: <spam-xxx at xxx.xx>)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
/usr/local/bin/dspam: permission denied
554 5.3.0 unknown mailer error 126

there are my configs:

Mlocal,         P=/usr/local/bin/dspam, F=lsDFMAw5:/|@qfSmn9,
S=EnvFromL/HdrFromL, R=EnvToL/HdrToL,
                A=dspam --user $u -d %u


Can me help some?

tnx Michel
