I just realized that I didn't reply to the mailing list...


Thanks for the pointer... I have been configuring this this everywhich 
way but loose :)

I made the changes and now I have nothing in any of my configs that 
point to /var/run/dovecot/auth-master and I still get the same error, 
even after rebooting the server.

Dec 26 17:55:12 example postfix/pipe[585]: E2F855C32: 
to=<tep at example.com>, relay=dovecot, delay=13, delays=12/0.05/0/0.09, 
dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: Error: 
net_connect(/var/run/dovecot/auth-master) failed: Permission denied )

I have read the wiki and searched the mail archives with no luck yet. 
Could it be something in the postfix build?

Thanks again,
