Usually GID 12 is the mail group and GID 20 is the games group.  If you've
changed this, you're probably going to have to change the ownership and
perms on postfix.  Did you try doing what it said, and
reconfiguring to take the gid 99?

Mine was configured with "./configure  --prefix=/usr/home/mailman
--with-mail-gid=99 --with-cgi-gid=99"
