    I have a client who is not getting email. The queue is loaded with them. When I try to force a delivery i get:

    Permission denied: creating lock file hitching post /home/inbox/mail/ (euid=546 egid=12)


    Here are the permissions:

    drw-rw---- 2 inbox mail 4096 Feb 2 22:54 ./
    drwxr-xr-x 3 inbox mail 4096 Dec 29 20:12 ../
    -rw-rw---- 1 inbox mail 9166 Feb 2 22:54 inbox
    -rw-r--r-- 1 inbox mail 0 Feb 2 16:31 inbox.pop

    His mailbox is called inbox. Might that cause a problem? They recently moved to my server from another CPanel server and it was running there.

    Any ideas?

    UPDATE: The permissions on the folder are set wrong. Reset it to drwx------ and all the mail delivered.
