Tweak postfix User IDs to align with Repair Permissions
Authored by: buddilla on Apr 26, '04 02:38:09AM

When i run repiar permissions it changes my Read Write Execute permissions on /private/var/mail so i end up getting error logs stating that i have to set my permissions back 1777. In terms of using fink to install ports for OSX I find more dificult to use more i delv into unix. try fink install kdebase3. GNU files dont ever install for me when using fink darwinports. Ha trying to install courier-imap 3.0.3 just gives me a res_query problem i have yet to have figured out. Unix apps belong in thier correct default directories not some stupid directory like /sw/bin or /opt/local. Makes install ports by hand hard when you have like 3 or 4 different make versions installed on one system. Get with the real install by hand. Atleast you'll have the pleasure of actually configuring something on your own that you know will work cus you did it on your own. haha several days trying to figure out why courier-imap wont configure has gotten me steamed. ok im done. MMM i guess on a good note just set the right user ids as well as group ids for post fix.

uid/gid for 10.3.3 postfix: uid 27 gid 27
mail: uid none gid 6
cyrus: uid 77 gid 6
mailmain: uid 78 gid 78
courier: uid 100 gid 100
postdrop: uid none gid 22
www: uid 70 gid 70

maybe this will make things easier.
