Hi,

after some ports updates/compiles i found an error in /var/log/maillog:

pbox1 postfix/pipe[19316]: E077E3F04F: to=<info@xxxxx.de>, relay=dovecot, delay=0.11, delays=0.03/0/0/0.08, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered via dovecot service (lda(info@xxxxxx.de,)Error: net_connect_unix(/var/run/dovecot/stats-writer) failed: Permission denied))

Under /var/run/dovecot/ i found (amongst others) the following files:

srw-------   1 root     wheel      0 Nov 30 12:00 old-stats
prw-r--r--   1 vmail    wheel      0 Nov 30 12:00 old-stats-mail
prw-------   1 root     wheel      0 Nov 30 12:00 old-stats-user
srw-rw----   1 vmail    vmail      0 Nov 30 12:00 quota-warning
srw-------   1 root     wheel      0 Nov 30 12:00 replication-notify
prw-------   1 root     wheel      0 Nov 30 12:00 replication-notify-fifo
srw-------   1 dovecot  wheel      0 Nov 30 12:00 replicator
srw-------   1 root     wheel      0 Nov 30 12:00 stats-reader
srw-rw----   1 root     dovecot    0 Nov 30 12:00 stats-writer

What are the required permissions for "stats-writer" ? Or is there another cause for the error message ?
Regards pylox

Re: Errors in /var/log/maillog

Try to restart Dovecot, it should fix the issue by self.

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?
