Do you always have your Incoming Work Dir and Quarantine Dir owned by 
the postfix user?
What about the postfix group as well?

I'm trying to make the init.d script better so that it sets the 
ownership automatically for postfix users to make their installation 
easier. I'm setting the ownership of the PID file too.

If I get enough responses, the new code will be in the November release.
