Failed to send mail : Write failed : Permission denied

Good Day

I have configured Usermin on my Mail Server for remote users to access their mail.I initially instally version 1.190, but this just seemed to give me problems etc, so i downgraded to 1.180.

The problem I am having is that I can compose and send mail but as I send it,it generates and error (send mail from usermin)

Failed to send mail : Write failed : Permission denied

Does any one know what this is?? and what causes this??

It may be a permissions problem on one of the mail directories or a mailbox file. Is there more information in /var/log/maillog?
