I'm not sure where to start. Our hard disk died on server running 10.6.8. Installed new disk. Followed Apple's migration instructions to 10.8.2. All services are operational except Mail.

Which postfix version, output of postconf -n, permissions on private/* –  adaptr Dec 7 '12 at 15:03

1 Answer 1

Your problem is listed in your log

Dec  7 10:04:50 server.mydomain.com postfix/postfix-script[912]: fatal: no Postfix queue directory /Volumes/Server HD/Data/spool!

Create directory /Volumes/Server HD/Data/spool and assign postfix permission to it.

Then restart your mail service.

Please keep in mind this MAY NOT solve your postfix problem completely, but at least let you move a step forward.

2 potential problem to your main.cf

(1) With a clean install Mountain Lion Server, the data spool is usually located at

/Library/Server/Mail/Data/spool

In your /Library/Server/Mail/Config/postfix/main.cf, you may want to change

queue_directory = /Volumes/Server HD/Data/spool

To

queue_directory = /Library/Server/Mail/Data/spool

(2) Missing mydestination in main.cf, you may want to add it back

mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost
