falco & till a big thanks goes to both of you!
Here is what I did and what solved some of the problems:
  1. installed famd (yast -i fam-server) which cleard mail-log from these nasty messages
    Code:
    Feb  1 11:54:36 alpheratz imapd: Failed to create cache file: maildirwatch (bogdan)
    Feb  1 11:54:36 alpheratz imapd: Error: Input/output error
    Feb  1 11:54:36 alpheratz imapd: Check for proper operation and configuration
    Feb  1 11:54:36 alpheratz imapd: of the File Access Monitor daemon (famd).
  2. added the relay server to the postfix main.cf (relayhost = load-balance-smtpout.mmu.ac.uk) which made me able to send emails

As we said we'll solve one problem at a time here is the some more work:
  1. I still have these messages in the mail-log every time I try to connect with my mail client (Thunderbird)
    Code:
    Feb  2 10:46:20 alpheratz postfix/smtp[23328]: warning: connect to private/tlsmgr: No such file or directory
    Feb  2 10:46:21 alpheratz postfix/smtp[23328]: warning: connect to private/tlsmgr: No such file or directory
    Feb  2 10:46:21 alpheratz postfix/smtp[23328]: warning: problem talking to server private/tlsmgr: No such file or directory
    Feb  2 10:46:21 alpheratz postfix/smtp[23328]: warning: no entropy for TLS key generation: disabling TLS support
  2. This is maybe obvious for you guys but I not for me - do I also need to enter the incomming server for postfix. I can send emails from it but I can't receive any. This is the bounce email I am getting:
    Code:
    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.
    
    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:
    
      bogdan@alpheratz.cpm.aca.mmu.ac.uk
        Sorry, bogdan@alpheratz.cpm.aca.mmu.ac.uk is not recognised by mmu.ac.uk.

  3. This is not so important for me but for the people in my department - all the folders like Sent, Trash, etc. are going out of the Inbox in Thunderbird and are not separately placed like on the old server
  4. Is it enough just to make a tape backup of /home/www/web6 to backup all mails fo the users in the web6. I know that with sendmail I also needed to save the /var folder. How is it solved in ISPConfig?
