FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p8 postfix-current-2.4.20060903,3 dovecot-1.0.r7 I just did a buildworld along with a new kernel this morning. While doing the installworld, I noticed an error message displayed regarding the /var/mail directory. I have the directory set to: 1777 so that dovecot can assess it. The installworld process reset the permissions to 0775 which were not sufficient for Dovecot.
The dovecot.log file had over a hundred entries similar to this: deliver(gerard): Error: open(/var/mail/.temp.scorpio.seibercom.net.1123.cd38cd4d82e1368f) failed: Permission denied deliver(gerard): Error: file_lock_dotlock() failed with mbox file /var/mail/gerard: Permission denied Obviously the /var/log/maillog had similar fail warnings. By changing the permission to 1777 on the /var/mail directory and running postsuper -r ALL, I was able to get the mail delivered. This is the second time this has happened. The last time I rebuild world I experienced the same phenomena. Why does build world insist on changing the directory permissions and is there a way I can prevent it from doing so? What I am trying to determine is if I really should have those settings on the directory, or if I have something configured wrong in either postfix or dovecot. -- Gerard Seibert [EMAIL PROTECTED] Antique fairy tale: Little Red Riding Hood.
