Sorry, I didn't state that, but yes, wrapper is owned by root:daemon

Ok...I THINK I found the problem. I killed the processes that were in a
loop after checking permissions on files. I found that the shlock.pl file
was set at 644 and when I set it to 755, I don't get a loop. I then sent
another message to the list and don't get any loops at all. I can't
believe that I missed that one. geez. Unless that wasn't it at all and I
had fixed it a long time ago but the processes where just stuck in a loop
that even rebooting the system wouldn't kill but killing them manually worked.

These come back as follows:
euid is: 23673
egid is: 10 30000 80 30 15 0 10
ruid is: 23673
rgid is: 10 30000 80 30 15 0 10
% ./wrapper test
euid is: 30004
egid is: 12 12
ruid is: 30004
rgid is: 12 12

I have been using perl 5.002 and have never escaped the @ characters in
quotish strings. hmmmmmmmmmm...Wonder if that could have been one of the
Another question....I saw messages when I first joined this list
about a program or something that would give statistics on what sendmail
has been up to. Does anybody remember that? Also, is there anyway that I
can check to see what sendmail is up to at any given time? As in Who is
left to send to on a list or who is sending out what at any given time?
BTW Dave...Thanks for your help. It made me look a little closer
then I did before.
