Postfix Dovecot Permission issue?


Hi,


I try to configure postfix and dovecot. I'm followed these tutorial.

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showth...hlight=Dovecot
http://workaround.org/ispmail/etch


First I got "/usr/lib/dovecot/deliver" No such file or directory message. Then I have created a "/usr/lib/dovecot/deliver" directory.


Code:
May 27 16:36:02 localhost pipe[26056]: fatal: pipe_command: execvp /usr/lib/dovecot/deliver: No such file or directory
May 27 16:36:02 localhost postfix/pipe[26055]: CE9768FED3: to=<john@example.com>, relay=dovecot, delay=26, delays=26/0.02/0/0.02, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: pipe: fatal: pipe_command: execvp /usr/lib/dovecot/deliver: No such file or directory )
After that Now I'm getting Permission denied message in my maillog

Code:
May 27 19:26:52 localhost postfix/pipe[30111]: E178F9000E: to=<john@example.com>, relay=dovecot, delay=388941, delays=388941/0.02/0/0, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: pipe: fatal: pipe_command: execvp /usr/lib/dovecot/deliver: Permission denied )
When I'm creting folder I set permission like this:

Code:
mkdir /usr/libexec/dovecot/deliver
chown vmail /usr/libexec/dovecot/deliver
Any one know how to set permission for "/usr/libexec/dovecot/deliver" ? or anything else i need to do?

Thanks

/usr/libexec/dovecot/deliver should not be a directory it is a program that delivers the mail from the mta to your mail store (dovecot)
