I am trying to install postfix and cyrus on SuSE 10.0 and ran into a problem. 
Without cyrus postfix does deliver the mail directly to the user postbos. no 
problem. No I turn cyrus delivery on:

mailbox_transport = lmtp:unix:/var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp

lmtpunix      cmd="lmtpd" listen="/var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp" prefork=1

Now the mail is not beeing delivered and I get the error messages:

Dec 16 09:39:11 dmz2 postfix/local[5752]: warning: connect #10 to subsystem 
private/cyrus: Permission denied

Dec 16 09:39:01 dmz2 kernel: SubDomain: REJECTING w access 
to /var/spool/postfix/private/cyrus (local(5752) 
profile /usr/lib/postfix/local active /usr/lib/postfix/local)

I tried to change file permissions but it did not help. I also did not find 
anything in the web. Any suggestion? Thanks for any help.
