Cannot send mail in Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion

- by admin

There is an error while sending mail in Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8:

send-mail: fatal: chdir /Library/Server/Mail/Data/spool: No such file or directory

To fix just run in terminal:
sudo mkdir -p /Library/Server/Mail/Data/spool
sudo /usr/sbin/postfix set-permissions
sudo /usr/sbin/postfix start

The solution also fixes an error in 10.8 where the fax service has stopped sending emails after the 10.8 upgrade.
