    I followed this guide in setting up my Postfix server. The mail server is running perfect however I have one small problem...

    When I check the logs, I notice the following:

    Code:
    Dec  9 13:53:11 mail postfix/postfix-script[19019]: warning: not owned by postfix: /var/spool/postfix/saved
    Dec  9 13:53:11 mail postfix/postfix-script[19027]: starting the Postfix mail system
    Dec  9 13:53:11 mail postfix/master[19028]: daemon started -- version 2.6.5, configuration /etc/postfix
    I don't understand why the permissions for the mention directory 'saved' are not owned by Postfix but should I change them manually to avoid any issues or would I risk breaking a working system?

    Code:
    [root@mail postfix]# pwd
    /var/spool/postfix
    [root@mail postfix]# ls -l
    total 60
    drwx------ 2 postfix  root     4096 2009-12-09 14:26 active
