I have postfix in group maildirs on my servers:
This is my group created many years ago (the server start its life as
FreeBSD 6.0, now it runs 8.2). I am using this group for mail
directories on all of my mailservers.

So I looked in to /etc/group and found that postfix is no longer member
of the group maildirs:
I must re-add it to group maildirs, so now I have it right:

uid=125(postfix) gid=125(postfix) groups=125(postfix),6(mail),3125(maildirs)
