Why is my zimbra.log full of maildrop errors?

May 25th, 2014 | By | Category: Internet, Linux / Freebsd

Checked on my zimbra log today and found a ton of these: warning: mail_queue_enter: create file maildrop/858267.11154: No such file or directory


Now there could be two solutions to this problem, for me it was as simple as

  1. going into /opt/zimbra/bin and running #postfix stop
  2. checking for any lingering postfix processes that aren’t shutting down properly and killing them manually
    1. ps -aux | grep postfix
    2. kill -9 ##### (replace # with the pid, and do this for everyone)
  3. #postfix start


The other solution would be to run zmfixperms
