    For a time, I was having significant mail problems. I finally made some changes to the server and everything is running smooth. Then the mail stops working. This is the weird part. It is always a simple fix, because the permissions are set too low. This is always the error:

    Can't change directory. Permission Denied: /var/spool/clientmqueue

    As soon as I change the permissions and restart Amavisd, Postfix, etc. the mail runs like a champ. The problem is that the next day, the folders go back to default 755 for the whole path. I know that I didn't change them. I am the only server operater too. Very weird.

    What could cause these folders to reset to 755. I haven't rebooted the system. The most that has been done is restarting httpd and mysqld.

    Fedora 14 64 bit Intel 3.2Ghz i5 Quadcore (if this helps)

    Thanks in advance!

    Probably a cron job from the /etc/cron.daily/ directory.
