    Hi All,

    I have a plesk server with Postfix not sending mail from yesterday evening.

    I am mad searching for the reason but I can't get it work. The errors I see on logs are:

    Jul 21 12:30:40 delta postfix-local[10342]: File .qmail is writable for group or others
    Jul 21 12:30:40 delta postfix-local[10342]: Wrong permissions for .qmail

    I can't undestand this error, I am using Postfix and so I don't know how to solve it.

    Greeted in advance for the help

    It means the file is writable by the group and/or any other user.

    Check file permissions on the directory (ls -lah), and you should see something like this:


    The first 3 permissions are for the owner, the second for the group, third for all others.

    You should remove write permissions for the group using the command:

    chmod g-w <filename>

    or for all others

    chmog o-w <filename>

    Hope this helps
