Ok, thanks. I have now got to the point where it works if I start it
from a "run as administrator" command shell.
I start Sendmail by "sendmail start" in /etc/rc.d/init.d/".
What is the easiest way to automate this without interaction? Ideally
from a normal account (which is also an "administrator" if that matters).
I want to have a .bat file in the Startup folder that starts Sendmail.
