Question Postfix Logs Show Warning

I followed this guide in setting up my Postfix server. The mail server is running perfect however I have one small problem...

When I check the logs, I notice the following:

Code:
Dec  9 13:53:11 mail postfix/postfix-script[19019]: warning: not owned by postfix: /var/spool/postfix/saved
Dec  9 13:53:11 mail postfix/postfix-script[19027]: starting the Postfix mail system
Dec  9 13:53:11 mail postfix/master[19028]: daemon started -- version 2.6.5, configuration /etc/postfix
I don't understand why the permissions for the mention directory 'saved' are not owned by Postfix but should I change them manually to avoid any issues or would I risk breaking a working system?

Code:
[root@mail postfix]# pwd
/var/spool/postfix
[root@mail postfix]# ls -l
total 60
