No. Postfix already runs as user mail, which in group mail. Postdrop
must be a group of which the user that postfix runs as is NOT a member.
- Create a group "postdrop" with a group id that is not used by
any other user account. Not even by the postfix user account.
I think this is done for security so only the setgid postdrop program
can write. Since CRUX doesn't have a dedicated postfix user, using mail
group is not wise according to install docs.
