Quote:I've tried to change the permission for the files by chmod 777 for the directory /var/spool/postfix/maildrop/* but without giving any solution
I have had problems for one week with the email server Postfix. This
came after running the antivirus ClamAV with the remove option on.
When reading the mail log I keep getting the error message shown below:
Normally, I can send email from commandline, such as
echo hello | mail -s "subject" [email protected]
I have noticed that even when Postfix is not running on my machine, I can still "send" emails. Actually they are being queued in /var/spool/postfix/maildrop. But once Postfix is started again, these emails will be sent out.
Can somebody please explain how this works?
