Re: a postfix problem
On May 15 06, bill thought of the following :
I am just trying to set up postfix on a newly installed sarge machine.
I have edited the main.cf, I am well accustomed to using postfix, but
have not so much experience with debian.
When I do a postfix reload after editing I get the following error
could someone here please be kind enough to point me in the right
direction to get this sorted out
postfix: fatal: bad string length 0 < 1: setgid_group =
with many thanks

The following is an extract of "postfix_conf_parameters.html" found at
The group ownership of set-gid Postfix commands and of group-writable postfix
When this parameter value is changed, you need to re-run
(With Postfix 2.0 and earlier:"/etc/postfix/post-install set-permissions")
By the looks of it, you cannot have an empty value next to "setgid_group".
Thanks for that useful info Danny, I will have a crack at it tomorrow.
