it still sounds like the user the daemons are running as not having
permission to read the files. check the directory permissions (need to
be at least r_x for the daemon user) and file permissions (need to be at
least r__ for the daemon user).

if you want us to double check this, show us the output of:

ps aux | grep 'sendmail\|named'

and an ls -l of the relevant files and directories.

it shouldn't change anything. chmod requires at least two arguements,
the mode to change the permissions to and the file(s) to apply it to.
