Can anyone tell me why I am suddenly, out of the blue, getting the 
following error when sending emails through Netscape 6.2: 

"An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.5.5 
Access denied. Please verify that your email address is correct in your 
Mail preferences and try again.".

This has occurred without any alteration to my account settings which are 
still fine. I have no difficulty in receiving messages. When sending I 
get in maillog the following: 

"sendmail[4016]: g4CZi104016: tcpwrappers 
(localhost.local.localdomain. rejection."

Then when I click OK maillog says:

"sendmail[4016]: NOQUEUE: localhost.local.localdomain [] did not 
issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection to MTA". 

I can send messages through Netscape as root and also as a non-privileged 
user through StarOffice.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
