My postfix system refuses to talk to some private daemons( virtual, trivial-rewrite, others not tested )
- Hi all,
please have a look at the attached files for further info.
In short, I upgraded my linux box from SuSE 9.1 to 10.1 and the postfix
system stopped working. For what I could understand from the log files, it
should be something involving file permissions or user/group permissions
of some postfix daemons!? But I couldn't figure out what it is. For
instance, what intrigued me was that the local transport daemon works just
fine, the virtual one does not. It appears to me that they both have the
same entries in master.cf. Delivery to local recipients works.
mail1.lst: output from command postfinger --all
mail2.lst: an excerpt from /var/log/mail
Please ask me for further details if needed.
I will appreciate any help.

tree, it should not reside inside /usr/postfix, and MUST not be owned by
the "postfix" user. Please fix this. The virtual_uid_maps = static:<uid>
value must not be the same as the uid of the "postfix" ($mail_owner) user.

file access not defined in that profile you get "Operation not permitted".
Either switch AppArmor into learning mode to modify the profile or
deactivate AppArmor entirely.
