Milti has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have the PM SendMail installed on a Microsoft 2003 server and am attempting to change the configuration for the SMTP relay server. I have root access to my server, can make changes to permissions, etc. but cannot save changes to the SendMail configuration file. I get an "Access Denied" message. Any ideas why this is happening? The folks at GoDaddy support suggested some service on the server is using the SendMail module. Can't imagine what that would be. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

        I have the PM SendMail

    Trying to grok what you are asking about here, are you talking about the Mail::Send module? Are you running the server service Sendmail?

      The configuration that I'm trying to change is located at: c:\Perl\Site\lib\Mail\SendMail. The configuration states that in most cases only one change might be required, i.e. the denoting of the SMTP server to be used for mail relaying. The current configuration is qw( localhost ) which will only allow mail delivery to addresses located on the server, itself. I need to change that configuration to the relay server at GoDaddy which provides my server. I can open the file and enter the changes but am not allowed to save them. Message says "access denied" even though I have administrative permissions. GoDaddy people suggested that a service on the server was utilizing SendMail and thus it wasn't available. I can't imagine what is wrong. Any help will be appreciated.
