Sylpheed on FreeBSD bind: permission denied

If you experience the error message

Copy
bind: permission denied

when you try to run sylpheed on freebsd you most likely have the false permissions for /tmp and/or /var/tmp.

You should be able to correct the permissions by using the following commands:

Copy
# chmod 777 /tmp /var/tmp # chmod +t /tmp /var/tmp

Also be sure to check the ownership (should be root:wheel) of the directories.
