Just to forwarn you, this is just a shot in the dark. happy.gif

Perhaps the user "postfix" was added with too high of a uid (I think is the term)?

Perhaps you could edit the config file to have it run as a diffrent user, (or try starting this program as a diffrent user than the one you used to get this error message)
