I have Panther on my machine. Postfix was running while i tried to send myself a test email, but I had problems. I had no mail i my mailbox, so I checked the error log and found that supposedly "drew" isn't a user, even though "drew" sent the message. Does anyone recognize the problem here? Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks.


This is what I typed into Terminal: (The log file shows the whole message for the one I sent at 17:12:07 only)
