I've updated today my Postifx for the correct patchlevel to avoid the problens identifyed with privilege escalation using hardlinks.
However i've hit a bump.
I have extremly large mailboxes on a server that are used for testing, but that i dont want to backup at night.
The way i have found around this is to place those mailboxes on another directory and then symlink them to the /var/spool/mail/$user and telling the backup program only to backup inside that directory.
Since i have installed the patch i cannot deliver mail to those files. I keep getting the this error:
"cannot update mailbox /var/mail/develop for user develop. file is a symbolic link"
Is there a way around this? Is there a parameter that i can include in postfix's configuration file to avoid this problem?
Another MDA is not the solution for the load on the server is very very high.
Can anybody help me?
Ps: sorry about my english :)
