You mean one of these (defined in my config file) ?

# Directory for incoming packets/files:
inbound /usr/spool/fnet/inb
# Directories for "listed" and "protected" sessions
listinbound /usr/spool/fnet/inb
protinbound /usr/spool/fnet/inb

well it didn't work even if I put the files to /var/spool/uucp and did a
'chown' to be sure they were owned by fnet.uucp. Anyway these are the
permissions on that dir:

drwxrwxrwt 3 uucp uucp 1024 Jan 1 01:53 uucp
drwxrwxrwt 2 uucp uucp 1024 Dec 27 05:38 uucppublic

Ehm... I'm not using sendmail but smail :-( I downloaded sendmail 8.8.4
yesterday but I have no idea about how to write a file to feed to m4 and get a file... I would really leave out smail since it is one of the few
a.out apps I'm still running...
