Are you running razor? This error message can occur when Razor mistakenly
puts the .razor directory in /var/spool/postfix/hash

If this is the case, try moving the files in /var/spool/postfix/hash/.razor
to /etc/razor and make sure that postfix can read and write to these files.

If your running a razor-discover cron job make sure that it specifies where
to put the servers file and corrects any ownership or permissions problems:

/usr/bin/razor-admin -discover -conf=/etc/razor/razor-agent.conf
