This doesn't sound like any solution I have heard of. What I did right from
the beginning (and I have never seen this problem) was to build and install
the 2.5 version of smail ( ISC's provided smail is some back-level thing that
doesn't even work! ). Install it according to the normal instructions for
a system that has sendmail, and everything works just fine. In this case
/bin/rmail is a link to /bin/smail.

Good Luck!
