Re: smail says "550 You are not permitted to send mail"

Sendmail (which is smail, anyway) doesn't work either. 
It neither sends the mail nor returns it to the sender like it claims to.

09:33:06</usr/sbin>$ sendmail root
09:33:20</usr/sbin>$ smail: mail moved to /var/spool/smail/error/13FJGC-0006PKC

09:33:43</home/krzys># cat /var/spool/smail/error/13FJGC-0006PKC
