how to move postfix queue directory


I'm looking to move the postfix directory from /var/spool/postfix to another array. When I specify the setting in main.cf as:

queue_directory = /opt/postfix

i reload and postfix will no longer send mail. All the subfolders are created underneath the /opt/postfix directory, but it's not actively working. Does anyone know the process to properly change the queue directory?

Check the owner and permissions on the directory. Make sure the new one matches the old.

they're the same. I actually just copied the old one to the new location.
