It seems that sendamil is running the lda, but the lda has problems
that are reported by by exiting with tempfail. You should check the
logging that is emitted by dovecot-lda to find what the problem is.
Ownership of the binary should not be one of them, I think, but show
us logging from dovecot-lda and we can tell you more. 'dovecot -n'
output would also help a lot.
