i've configured sendmail 8.13 with cyrus imap 2.1 on my fedora core 3
i set them both up to work with smtpauth and saslauthd
it's worked fine for about a month and then it started to give this error : ( taken from the /var/log/maillog )
Oct 16 17:32:48 shumer sendmail: j9GFWi1Z027463: from=<firstname.lastname@example.org>, size=1416, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<98db013f0510160834k4f068fa7g8c7744e676e0e79 4@mail. gmail.com>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=qproxy.gmail.com [220.127.116.11]

i tried cleaning the mqueue dir - didn't help.
checked that the /var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp is there - it's there , and the permissions are 777 ( srwxrwxrwx )
checked that the imapd.conf has
configdirectory: /var/lib/imap - which matches the path of the lmtp
checked that in cyrus.conf the line is :
lmtpunix cmd="lmtpd" listen="/var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp" prefork=1
i say again - it worked and i did nothing, changed nothing at all.
there is little about this subject in google.com or google.com/linux
any help will be great
