Do a google or RPM search for majordomo. There are lots of bug fixes between
1.94.4 and 1.94.5, especially Y2k fixes and digest enhancements. The RPM to
use is 1.94.5-2. If I remember right, it even creates the majordomo user for
you and creates a link to wrapper in /etc/smrsh. It has been a very long time
since I have installed using RPM though.
Service unavailable means you are piping to a program that is not available to
sendmail via the SendMailRemoteSHell (smrsh) tool. To make programs available
to sendmail for piping, you must have a link (or the executable itself) in the
/etc/smrsh directory. You must be the root user, or change the owner:group to
root:root, when you create the link.
