Could be a "simple" permissions prob. Make sure smail is setuid root. I use sendmail
but I had the same sort of problem with my mail queue at one point. Something like;

-r-sr--r--   1 root     bin        258130 Oct  9 16:09 /usr/sbin/smail

needs to be done. That's a "chmod u+s smail". Just a wild suggestion.
