just wanted to let you know that I ran into a problem today after
upgrading to Postfix 2.10.0. In this new version the master.cf has
changed and unix instead of fifo is used for qmgr and pickup by default .
After the upgrade I noticed that incoming mails stayed in the incoming
queue a long time before getting delivered.
I checked the log and MailScanner was complaining:
KickMessage failed as couldn't write to /var/spool/postfix/public/qmgr,
No such device or address
After changing the qmgr entry back to fifo in master.cf, everything
works as before.
I think this a MailScanner problem? If it is, probably it needs to be
fixed in upcoming versions?
