Thread: Debian 5 (Lenny) template won't deliver to local mail

  1. #1

    Default Debian 5 (Lenny) template won't deliver to local mail

    An incorrect ownership within the Debian 5.0 (Lenny) template causes a problem when trying to deliver mail to a local user.

    The ownership for /var/mail in the Debian 5.0 (Lenny) template has user=root and group=man and should be user=root and group=mail.

    Exim, for example, logs the following message with the incorrect settings when attempting local mail delivery: Permisssion denied: creating lock file hitching post.

    Executing "chown root:mail /var/mail" will fix the problem.

    I have confirmed this issue and will escalate it to our template developers - thank you for the report (and for providing a workaround with your report).
