By the way, the problem appears to be solely permissions-based. When
I've got normal-looking permissions on /var/mail, postfix gives that
error, "cannot create file." Courier-IMAP says, "imapd: chdir
javaspot.net/pergesu: No such file or directory" chmod 777 /var/mail
and they both work fine. But that's of course not the permissions I
want on it.
