    Default Sometimes Postfix doesn't start!

    Hi,
    I'm new in forum and a beginner Zimbra admin.

    I've a strage issue with my installation (Release 8.0.5.GA.5839.UBUNTU12.64 UBUNTU12_64 FOSS edition), sometimes when i reboot my Zimbra server postfix doesn't start.

    This is an extract of /var/log/mail.log when I have the issue :

    If I restart services (zmcontrol restart) or I reboot server (shutdown -r now) all works fine, but not every time...

    The probability that server works after a restart is about 70%

    Have you any suggestion?

    Thanks in advance
