You have reached your limit to create mailboxes!

Although I'm assuming you probably fixed this I like to tie up lose ends. You can easily increase the default 10 mailboxes by logging into postfix admin. Then:

  1. click Domain List
  2. click "edit" at the far right
  3. increase your mailboxes to any number or enter "0" for unlimited.
  4. click "Edit Domain" to save
  • You can also change the default in the postfixadmin config file from 10 to something larger as well however changing that setting won't change it for domains already in the database. – kashani Feb 27 '11 at 1:50
