Lo all,

Does anyone have an idea why rt-mailgate aren't able to setuid?

I know it's more than likely a error related towards my MTU or a system
related issue, but I can't seem to shake it.  I've added the rt group to
Exim's trusted users, but that also didn't seem to be able to solve the

Relevant MTU is exim-3.36 calling RT via the aliasfile driver,

The following text was generated during the delivery attempt:

------ pipe to |/usr/local/rt/bin/rt-mailgate --queue xxx --action
       generated by xxx at xxx.co.za ------

Can't do setuid
