    Ever since setting up the Virtual Users and Domains from the tutorial here i now have my /var/log/mail.err file flooded with errors like:

    Jan 4 00:37:48 planetdrupal postfix/qmgr[18045]: fatal: qmgr_active_defer: rename 3F055C22804 from active to deferred: Permission denied

    although mail seems to be working more or less ok.

    any thoughts?

    Do you always have the user planetdrupal in the error messages, or are there also other users?

    not a user

    planetdrupal is not a user.. hmmm, i suspect a clue...

    planetdrupal.ca is the primary domain on this server, but most of the mail activity is from another domain

    errors occur at random time intervals but approx 1-3 / min

    What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /var/spool/postfix
    ?

    chown postfix /var/spool/postfix/deferred
