Question Postfix stopped working | fatal: dict_open: unsupported dictionary type:

Hi everybody.
After several days i finally configured a running mailserver (pop3 AND smtp). But only one day later postfix isnt working at all. I'm unable to do authentifaction(pop3 and smtp). I worked fine before. My virtusertable.db suddendly was owned by smmsp. I googled and now i think an old sendmail cronjob was the cause for that. So I deleted every sendmail cronjob and changed the owner back to root. But than I saw a fatal error in the mail.log and after the error exiting postfix programs. This domain was created by a user during this time with ispconfig (I suppose).

/var/log/mail.log
Code:
Jan  6 05:57:47 srv089 postfix/postfix-script: stopping the Postfix mail system
Jan  6 05:57:47 srv089 postfix/master[756]: terminating on signal 15

Jan  6 05:57:49 srv089 postfix/master[4788]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/qmgr: bad command startup -- throttling
I didn't restart postfix manually

My main.cf
Code:
myhostname = srv089.xxx.de
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
myorigin = /etc/mailname
mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names 
mydomain = srv089.xxx.de
myhostname = srv089.xxx.de
relayhost = 
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8
mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
mailbox_size_limit = 0
recipient_delimiter = +
inet_interfaces = all
smtpd_sasl_local_domain =
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated,permit_mynetworks,reject_unauth_destination
smtpd_tls_auth_only = no
smtp_use_tls = yes
smtpd_use_tls = yes
smtp_tls_note_starttls_offer = yes
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/smtpd.key
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/smtpd.crt
smtpd_tls_CAfile = /etc/postfix/ssl/cacert.pem
smtpd_tls_loglevel = 1
smtpd_tls_received_header = yes
smtpd_tls_session_cache_timeout = 3600s
tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom
virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable
Any help to get postfix back running would be great
Thanks in advance,
meldron

Please try to add or modify a mailuser in ISPConfig, ISPConfig will then recreate the virtusertable and local-host-names file for you and creates a new hashed virtusertable.db file.

What's in /etc/postfix/local-host-names and /etc/postfix/virtusertable?
