smail setup question

I have installed smail because I didn't have any success with sendmail. Now
everything works fine, except that I used to get a mail every 20 minutes:

Cron <mail@miggy> runq
From: root (Cron Daemon)
To: mail

runq: setgroups() failed: Operation not permitted

until I set 'smail' (to which the runq symlink points) uid. Now my question
is if this is really necessary and if yes, why this wasn't done automatically
when I installed the smail package.


Why drink & drive when you can smoke and fly?!
