Ok, just for fun...   I chmod -R 777 the postmaster dir.

Then I logged in, and sent a mail, and back, then checked the new permissions.

Now the directory shows uid 89, which is my old mailservers uid for vpopmail. The new server's vpopmail uid 1008.

It seems that the uid is statically compiled somewhere.... I just don't know where.
Grrrr


FreeBSD reserves the uid and gid of 89 just for vpopmail and vchkpw. It would be a good idea to use them to avoid ports conflicts later down the road.
