Apple Security Update 2008-07 breaks Postfix

| No TrackBacks

At least, if you have compiled your own version it does... More info on this update here.

After running this update and restarting, not only did Postfix not launch correctly, but my logs quickly filled up with warnings about every single file on my drive not being owned by Postfix. Several reboots later I was finally at the point where I could try troubleshooting this, and the easiest fix was to just run a new 'make upgrade' on my current postfix install.

Also, be sure to remove /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.postfix.master.plist before rebooting, as this file won't work for a real mailserver, if you were using a .plist in this location to start postfix previously, you'll need to restore a backup of your original file or recreate it from scratch.
