    Question Warning messages about file permissions started appearing in daily report

    This warning message appeared in the daily mail report two days ago:
    Code:

    The server was running Zimbra 8.0.0_GA.

    Yesterday I upgraded to Zimbra 8.0.3_GA_5664 (build 20130305090204). Last night's report still shows this:
    Code:

    File permissions in that folder look like this:
    Code:
    root@mail:/opt/zimbra/postfix-2.10-20121007.2z/conf# ls -l
    total 220

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root   postfix 12494 Feb  8 01:45 virtual

    My question is: do permission changes like these happen quasi-normally or do I need to worry about this?

    Would you recommend changing the permissions of those files?

    No, you should never modify those permissions, there's nothing wrong with them and the message is just a warning.
