    Hello!

    Some times when I send a mail to a domain from my server I receive a error message like this:

    > This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.
    >
    > A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    > recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:
    >
    > mail@some.domain.com

    > Permission denied:
    > creating lock file hitching post
    /var/spool/mail/mail/inbox.lock.some.domain.com.3fc59eb
    8.00004588 (euid=8 egid=12):
    > retry timeout exceeded

    What can be?

    Thanks!

    Try to remove the inbox.lock files from the directory. This can fix the error.
