Unhappy Unknown (maildrop) error

Hi!

I am using ISPConfig 3.0.1.1.
When I create mailbox on my server (for example "aaa@domain.com") and try to send e-mail there from other mailbox, I will not receive it.

When I look at "Mail-Queue" I have mail there with error:
(temporary failure. Command output: ERR: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: Permission denied /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to open mailbox.)

Can some1 help me please?

Delete the directory of the mailbox on the shell (e.f. /var/vmail/example.com/user ) and then send a email to this mailbox.

and then try to send a email to the account again.

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

Code:
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

Code:
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:

Code:
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

james

The permissions in your system are ok, so your issue is not related to the one in this thread. Did you install any Linux updates or did you use the postfix module in webmin before this started to happen? Have you checked if your disk is not full with "df -h"?

I have had webmin installed with the postfix module since before this happened.
No updates for at least a couple of weeks and have restarted since then.
Loads of space
df -h returns this
Code:
root@belle:/var/vmail/glemsfordschool.local# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1             224G  5.8G  207G   3% /
tmpfs                 993M     0  993M   0% /lib/init/rw
varrun                993M  380K  993M   1% /var/run
varlock               993M     0  993M   0% /var/lock
udev                  993M  140K  993M   1% /dev
tmpfs                 993M     0  993M   0% /dev/shm
lrm                   993M  2.5M  991M   1% /lib/modules/2.6.28-17-server/volatile
root@belle:/var/vmail/glemsfordschool.local#
So lots there.
