Permission denied: creating lock file hitching postLast Modified: Jan 31, 2005, 1:58 pm
This can happen if the file permissions on the spool files for the emails are incorrect.   Run the following to reset them:

chmod 1777 /var/spool/mail
chown mail:mail /var/spool/mail
chmod 1777 /var/spool/virtual
chown mail:mail /var/spool/virtual


and for each domain you have, (eg domain.com for user username)

chmod 770 /var/spool/virtual/domain.com
chown username:mail /var/spool/virtual/domain.com
