I found the issue...
the groupid was not correct for user smmsp in /etc/passwd. Changed it to 
25 as mentioned in the error and it worked.

My original post was:

Hi Gurus,
I have problem sending email running Solaris 10. When i try to send
email as user it gives me folowing error:

WARNING: RunAsUser for MSP ignored, check group ids (egid=25, want=1529)
can not write to queue directory /var/spool/clientmqueue/ (RunAsGid=0,
required=25): Permission denie

But it works as root. When i checked clientmqueue it shows
drwxrwx---   2 smmsp    smmsp        512 May 10 15:53 clientmqueue
and is correct as per sendmail doc. I am also running sendmail
submission program

root  2099     1   0   May 09 console     0:04 /usr/lib/sendmail -bd -q15m
smmsp  2100     1   0   May 09 console     0:00 /usr/lib/sendmail -Ac -q15m

Please help to resolve this issue.
