I am the only one running thunderbird. .I normally let thunderbird stay
open forever.. there are only 2 of us logged into this box, me & my
wife. She runs kmail, with an IMAP account.

I'm not sure why I would want to set this, thunderbird has always run
fine before ( and since)..

also in my dovecot log I'm getting this:
2010-11-08 12:45:52 deliver(pbc): Fatal: postmaster_address setting not

and I KNOW I set this before...
and I have this in dovecot.conf:
postmaster_address=pbc at localhost
