    I have a server which I upgraded recently from 2.3.13 to 2.3.14.
    Now I realized that sending mail to shared folders doesn't work anymore.
    I have verified the problem on a test box and it looks like this:

    May 28 11:01:49 install lmtpunix[15085]: accepted connection
    May 28 11:01:49 install lmtpunix[15085]: lmtp connection preauth'd as postman
    May 28 11:01:49 install lmtpunix[15085]: verify_user(system) failed:
    Permission denied
    May 28 11:01:49 install postfix/lmtp[15077]: 87D6F34018:
    to=<+>, orig_to=<+system at localhost>,
    relay=install.corp.invoca.ch[/var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp], delay=0.12,
    delays=0.09/0.01/0/0.03, dsn=5.7.1, status=bounced (host
    install.corp.invoca.ch[/var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp] said: 550-You do not
    have permission to post a message to this mailbox. 550-Please contact the
    owner of this mailbox in order to submit 550-your message, or postmaster
    if you believe you 550-received this message in error. 550 5.7.1
    Permission denied (in reply to RCPT TO command))

    The mailbox has the following permissions:

    localhost.localdomain> lam system

    anyone lrs

    I just downgraded to 2.3.13 and it works again, upgrading to 2.3.14 and it

    Somehow there was a change from 2.3.13 to 2.3.14 which triggers the
    problem. I tried to identify which change it is but can't find it.

    Another interesting detail is that both servers where it doesn't work are
    RedHat EL4 on i386 while I have a server RedHat EL5 on x86_64 where it
    seems to work.

    Does anyone who knows the changes between 2.3.13 and 2.3.14 have an idea
    what could be the problem here?
