Which Distro are you using?

I know when I upgraded my Slackware server from sendmail to postfix i find it now looks to save mail to.
/var/spool/mail instead of /var/mail and I had a few issues reconfiguring everything. But thats about
all the help I know of. sad.gif also check your permissions. The postdrop group had to be set for my inboxs and
owned by postfix. and overlook default directories in your postfix config /etc/postfix/main.cf.
just 2c's worth.

Cheers,

Matt
