I've just seen the same message again. I enabled maildrop in
/etc/postfix/main.cf, by adding this:
mailbox_command = /usr/bin/maildrop
I then tried to send a mail, and the log said:

Reloading postfix configuration (with /etc/init.d/postfix reload) was
necessary to make maildrop work. Why does this happen?
