I dont know much about mail but I did a chown -R postfix.postfix
/var/spool/mqueue and now it is done complaining. Is that correct
permissions or is it a stupid thing to do?

Your Postfix queues are set out strangely. It's not expecting to see a
.hoststat file/dir when scanning for the directory hashing depth.

If you delete .hoststat does it re-appear?
