I have seen it Julian. its has pwr in the first 3 places if taking the
ls -l.

All understood but where do I turn the path ?. It asks for
/var/spool/public/qmgr, but this is wrong I think.

Thank you so much for your reply. I felt myself a bit trapped :-).

any scripts for chroot jail for Redhat, as I have read there should be
in the install doc for MailScanner under Postfix.
