    Qmail log: deferral: maildrop:_Unable_to_open_mailbox./


    I got mail in my qmail queue and here is log entry for it:

    Code:
    Oct 19 08:20:02 vps qmail: 1382185202.376552 delivery 2: deferral: maildrop:_Unable_to_open_mailbox./
    Someone adviced:
    sudo chown -R vmail:postfix /usr/local/virtual

    and also:
    Debug maildrop and your mailfilter with a command like:
    maildrop -V2 < amail

    id did: man maildrop
    No manual entry for maildrop

    my .qmail files:
    /etc/skel/.qmail;
    /postmaster/.qmail;
    /home/axfrdns/.qmail;
    /home/tinydns/.qmail;
    /home/dnslog/.qmail;
    /home/admin/.qmail;
    /home/dnscache/.qmail;
    /home/lxadmin/mail/domains/mydomain.com/postmaster/.qmail;

    Please any idea how to fix this deferral: maildrop:_Unable_to_open_mailbox./ ?

    I still cant solve the cause of these frequent messages. Bogofilter takes 70% of the cpu, im not running mailserver.

    Permissions from home to Maildir:
