I'm quite new to this list, and english is not my native language ...

Some days ago my uw-imap stopped working without any error message, and as
it run for a long time, I never looked in detail to the postfix & uw config.

not exist" ...
The output of postconf -n is attached to this email.
I'm running SuSE 8.2, postfix 2.0.6, cyrus-imap 2.1.12 & mailman 2.1.1
I read some stuff regarding "mailman wrapper", but I couldn't find it ...
even when compiling it from sources no wrapper becomes created/compiled ....
