    I have (quite) fresh installation of Mandriva 2009 with ispconfig. Every couple of minutes I see in mail error log:

    Jan 13 09:16:47 ns1 postfix/sendmail[16127]: fatal: file /etc/postfix/main.cf: parameter setgid_group: unknown group name: postdrop

    I have line
    setgid_group = postdrop
    in main.cf

    and I also have group postdrop in /etc/group

    It looks that everything works fine (mails are delivered) but I still want to found reason for error and repair it... I can't find and usefull information on web so help would be very apreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Please try to comment ou the line:

    setgid_group = postdrop

    and restart postfix. The line is not needed by ispconfig.

    I've removed line in main.cf but problem persist. Every couple of minutes I get in log error line.

    What's in your mail log now?

    What's in your main.cf?

    Try this:
    Code:
    groupadd postdrop

    Is your Postfix running chrooted? What's in /var/spool/postfix/etc/group?

    matej New Member

    How do I know if it's chrooted? (I've used your "perfect" install guide for mandriva).

    I have directory /var/spool/postfix/etc but no group file in it. Should I make it?

    Did you install your server exactly as described in the madriva perfect setup guide for ISPConfig?

    allmost exactly. I've added postgrey to postfix configuration.

    I've found that sending mail through php doesn't work. When I want to send mail thrugh PHP I get error in apache error log:
    sendmail: fatal: file /etc/postfix/main.cf: parameter setgid_group: unknown group name: postdrop


    Thanks for help!

    this turned out to be a NON-world readable /etc/group.

    Sorry about that...
