Default sendmail, mqueue : permission denied


I'm trying to build a small mailserver using sendmail MTA.
I want to send and receive mail from my domain : example.net

In my /etc/mail, i have these files configured :
README              genericstable       openbsd.mc          virtusertable.db
aliases             genericstable.db    sendmail.cf
aliases.db          openbsd-proto.mc    virtusertable
my openbsd.mc file (to build sendmail.cf):
# ...
VERSIONID(`@(#)openbsd-proto.mc $Revision: 1.11 $')dnl
define(`confPRIVACY_FLAGS', `authwarnings,needmailhelo,noexpn,novrfy,nobodyreturn')dnl
FEATURE(nouucp, `reject')dnl
FEATURE(`virtusertable', `hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable')dnl
FEATURE(genericstable, `hash -o /etc/mail/genericstable')dnl
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Family=inet, Address=, Name=MTA')dnl
When i log in console with my user "wesley", i can receive mail from wesley@example.net but when i try to send an email, i have the folling error :
$ can not chdir(/var/spool/mqueue/): Permission denied
Program mode requires special privileges, e.g., root or TrustedUser.
Therefore, if i use su, and then send an email, it 's ok, i can send email from wesley@example.net
I need help. Thank you very much.

I haven't used sendmail for years and can't offer you any specific advice, but google found a few people with the same problem that seem to have solved it. For example: http://fixunix.com/security/17668-se...e-problem.html
