    Default [SOLVED] run zmfixperms as root but still getting Permission Denied

    Hi all

    Had to restore of our 6.0.8 opt/zimbra from backup a month back and have been getting postfix/postdrop permission errors although mail delivery seems to be fine.

    Error every 10 seconds in log is:
    ZIMBRA1 postfix/postdrop[5654]: warning: mail_queue_enter: create file maildrop/(some number): Permission denied

    I have run zmfixperms as root and it runs without showing errors but does not solve the problem.

    Thanks
    Andy

    try the following
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol stop
    logout
    /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms --verbose --extended
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol start

    Should I also run "chown -R zimbra:zimbra /opt/zimbra" as I did a restore?

    Thanks

    I have a log entry every second or so:
    Jun 21 11:22:49 zimbra postfix/postdrop[30421]: warning: mail_queue_enter: create file maildrop/918685.30421: Permission denied
    Tried the above suggestion from Raj, but it did not help.

    Here are the current permissions on this folder.
    [zimbra@zimbra ~]$ ls -l /opt/zimbra/data/postfix/spool/|grep drop
    drwx-wx---. 2 postfix postdrop 4096 May 21 18:06 maildrop
    drwx--x---. 2 postfix postdrop 4096 Jun 21 11:07 public
