Hey everybody, I thought I'd ask here because I've already gotten some excellent help here on experts exchange and all i could find on google was guys asking the same question, with nobody answering (which is the exact strength of experts-exchange right?)
So, I've recently setup postfix to work with a virtual users stored in a mysql db, the actual mail stored in maildirs. if you go to:
you'll find a really excellent tutorial on what i've done so far. So basically where I am is right after following that how to, hence why I'm confused and wandering in noob-land.
I've tried testing and fixing it now for hours but I always get this error:
hercules postfix/virtual: B88ED1ABAAD: to=<blahblahblah@blahblahb
lah.com>, relay=virtual, delay=0, status=deferred (maildir delivery failed: create ///var/spool/postfix/postf
m: Permission denied)
that's not the real email add, or domain, obviously, but the error othewise is cut and pasted from maillog. I think my clue is the fact that there's 3 / at the begginning of the dir, if i change the:
in main.cf i get a correspoding error with /blah/ at the start and what not, I'm just not familiar enough with any of this yet to track down my problem, so i'm just going to post here again, and hope one of you is using a similar setup as an isp or something.
I've tried everything I could think of permissions's wise on the actual file system, but who know...help!!
hmmm....i'm trying to sweeten the pot here with a few more points by editing this but I can't seem to find any options to add points.....oh well...
