Tweak postfix User IDs to align with Repair Permissions
Authored by: 47ronin on Apr 14, '04 01:57:56PM

If your Postfix works fine through repairPermissions, it's because you did a clean install of Panther. Upgrade/Archive installs of Panther from Jag have this Postfix problem because the postfix user is not created. Hopefully this hint will correct this error.

Tweak postfix User IDs to align with Repair Permissions

I'm not so sure about the clean install thing, I recently wiped my HD and re-installed 10.3.3, and then enabled postfix (with postfix enabler) for the first time ever, and my postfix still breaks after repairing permissions.

FWIW, my postfix uid was 23456 before I changed it with this hint.

I did an archive and install, and my UID is 27.
