Hi all -

 may I please take some advantage of your experience and knowledge:

I installed CGP 5.2.8 on a virgin OS X Server 10.5.5. 

OS X is running AFP / DNS / SMB / Web


All seems to be running smooth except for the fact that 

my server log is showing innumerable / repeating error log entries




> Oct  6 08:31:44 myserver          postfix/master[41539]: fatal: bind port 25: Address already in use

> Oct  6 08:31:45 myserver[1] (org.postfix.master[41539]): Exited with exit code: 1

> Oct  6 08:31:45 myserver[1] (org.postfix.master): Throttling respawn: Will start in 9 seconds

Since this may slow down the machine and built large log files I would like to get rid of it.


Any idea where to start searching? What info regarding our system may lead to a clue …?

All help is appreciated - please be aware that I am 

a believing apple server admin with little unix knowledge :-))
