    i don't know if this is the correct place for this, but i am desprate.

    Suddenly my postfix server stopped delivering any of the mail it recieved. it just keeps getting deferred. and cyrus.conf looked fine, what config file should i be looking at. thanks!

    you will discover my dirty secret, i am running os x 10.3 server. but postfix used to work, but suddenly pop3 died. i tried to turn /var/mail but that doesn't seem to work. any help would be apreciated.
