Sylpheed on FreeBSD bind: permission denied

If you experience the error message 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:

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

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