Default It's started happening to me

Hope you can help me too!

Today our mail server just decided to start doing this for no apparent reason

In the Webmin postfix module email queue there is the following message under status for every message

temporary failure. Command output: ERR: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: Permission denied /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to open mailbox.
ls -la /var/vmail/glemsfordschool.local returns the following

root@belle:/var/vmail# ls -la /var/vmail/glemsfordschool.local
total 12
drwx------ 3 vmail vmail 4096 2010-02-01 15:44 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 vmail vmail 4096 2010-02-01 15:57 ..
drwx------ 5 vmail vmail 4096 2010-02-01 15:44 incoming
ls -la /usr/bin/maildrop returns the following:

root@belle:/var/vmail# ls -la /usr/bin/maildrop
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root vmail 179520 2010-01-30 23:02 /usr/bin/maildrop
And still the emails remain with the same problem. No changes have been made to the system prior to this happening.

Any ideas please. We are unable to get emails otherwise.

Thanks in advance
