Subject: WWW Form Bug Report: "question regarding suEXEC" on Irix

Operating system: Irix, version: 5.3
Version of Apache Used: 1.2b2
Extra Modules used: status
URL exhibiting problem: 

First, this is most likely a problem with my understanding rather than a bug.
We have been running Apache for a while, we have numerous virtual
servers running. I welcomed the chance to provide secure CGI capabilities
and installed the suEXEC wrapper. Works great for the vast majority of
the CGI's I've written. However it seems that CGI which make "system()"
calls are failing. For example I occasionally do this to semd email

  sprintf(syscmd,"/usr/sbin/Mail -s \"From %s\" %s < %s\n",argv[0],argv[1],fname);

Why does this fail? How should I send mail from C based CGI's?
