I have been having problems with the owner and permssion on 
/var/lib/postfix in openSUSE 11.4, but I have found a solution.

Something keeps changing the owner of /var/lib/postfix to postfix, but I 
have a workaround. If I change both owner and group to kolab, and set 
permission for both owner and group to read/write/execute, then kolab 
carries on working, even if the owner changes. It causes warnings in 
postfix.log, but they can be safely ignored.

chown kolab:kolab /var/lib/postfix
chown kolab:kolab /var/lib/postfix/*
chmod 770 /var/lib/postfix
chmod 600 /var/lib/postfix/*
