Hi lazacom;

I am having send problems on my new server as well, so take what I say with a grain of salt. I have done so much reading attempting to solve my problem, that I can readily see some problems with yours.

1. When you move from ispconfig to virtualmin (or from any panel to another for that matter), always do a complete re-install first. Different panels access system files differenly and you don't want the remains of one interfering with another.

2. Postfix should run as root. Here is a directory listing of a server that is running virtualmin/postfix/dovecot:

# ls -l
total 100
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 0 2012-01-09 16:45 bcc
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12288 2012-02-24 14:24 bcc.db
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 370 2012-01-09 16:41 dynamicmaps.cf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1737 2012-05-09 18:23 main.cf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5357 2012-01-09 16:46 master.cf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 18992 2011-05-10 08:47 postfix-files
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 8729 2011-05-10 08:47 postfix-script
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 24256 2011-05-10 08:47 post-install
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2012-01-09 16:46 sasl
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3690 2012-05-09 18:23 virtual
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12288 2012-05-09 18:23 virtual.db

notice that everything is chowned root:root. It's not exactly the same on ispconfig, but you are using virtualmin, not ispconfig, so I would think yours should look more like the above.
