Hi All,

Today I've been notified about one mail delivered multiple times to at least one mailbox.
What I've found in mail.log:

Code:
lmtp: Fatal: master: service(lmtp): child 25964 returned error 89 (Fatal failure)

going on - dovecot-lmtp-errors.log

Code:
lmtp([email protected])<16171><dd/CG2pX3mErPwAAqWA3Tw>: Fatal: setgid(8(mail) from userdb lookup) failed with euid=509(idmuser), gid=12(man), egid=12(man): Operation not permitted (This binary should probably be called with process group set to 8(mail) instead of 12(man))

/etc/virtual/DOMAIN/passwd
Code:
sianko:$1$HHaa$$:511:8::/home/LOGIN/imap/DOMAIN/USER:/bin/false:userdb_quota_rule=*:bytes=101M

It looks, that every email user modification i DA panel (this time I've changed quota only) GID i changing from 12 (man) (this is incorrect, but works now that way) to 8 (mail) (this is correct)

I'm running Debian 10, system was migrated from centos 6 few weeks ago, so I'm not sure if this is the reason.

Is is possible to change somewhere GID for this? How to deal with this issue?

I'll answer to myself.

It looks like error in conversion from Centos to Debian.
/etc/virtual was synchronized by rsync. GID of mail group on old system was different than on new one.
Now I've changed GID in all /etc/virtual/*/passwd files to correct one
Also fixed perms under /home/$USER/imap from :man to :mail

Code:
find /home -user man -exec chown :mail {} \;

Checking logs, everything looks fine so far.
