    I some mail deliveries sent out by apache, www-data is unable to create a maildir on /var/www/. Since there is no such directory (/var/www/Maildir), do i have to create it manually and assign proper permissions? Is this a serious error?

    An extract of the log follows:

    Code:

    I suggest you create an alias for the user www-data in /etc/aliases, pointing to your own user or email address, so that you can see the messages that get sent to Apache (probably DSNs).
    Don't forget to run
    Code:
    newaliases
    and restart Postfix after your changes.
