    Default postdrop: warning: unable to look up public/pickup: No such file or directory

    Hi,

    I keep getting this feedback from executing a cron job, it runs everyday at this time. Can anyone tell me what this means?


    Code:
    Apr  6 00:05:01 anointedserv1 /USR/SBIN/CRON[4294]: (root) CMD (/var/cache/iplist/updateip)
    Apr  6 00:05:16 anointedserv1 cron[1788]: postdrop: warning: unable to look up public/pickup: No such file or directory
    Apr  6 00:10:01 anointedserv1 /USR/SBIN/CRON[4401]: (root) CMD (/usr/sbin/ipblock - p)
    Apr  6 00:10:01 anointedserv1 cron[1788]: postdrop: warning: unable to look up public/pickup: No such file or directory
    Thanks!...

    Is postfix running? And configured?

    Do an "ls -l /var/spool/postfix/public". It should contain this:

    Code:
    Telcontar:~ # l /var/spool/postfix/public
    total 8
    drwx--x---  2 postfix maildrop 4096 Apr 18 20:27 ./
    drwxr-xr-x 16 root    root     4096 Dec 22 16:05 ../
    srw-rw-rw-  1 postfix postfix     0 Apr 18 20:27 cleanup=
    srw-rw-rw-  1 postfix postfix     0 Apr 18 20:27 flush=
    prw--w--w-  1 postfix postfix     0 Apr 18 23:51 pickup|
    prw--w--w-  1 postfix postfix     0 Apr 18 23:47 qmgr|
    srw-rw-rw-  1 postfix postfix     0 Apr 18 20:27 showq=
    Telcontar:~ #
    Check "/etc/postfix/master.cf", there should be this line:

    Code:
    pickup          fifo  n       -       n       60      1       pickup

    Hi, thanks for the reply!

    No, I don't have Postfix running at the moment. This is on my TODO List.

    That's your problem, then.

    Cron uses local email to send you the output from the cron job. If email is
    not working, you have a problem.

    And that is weird, because postfix is installed and runs by default on any
    openSUSE system, unless you took steps to remove it.
