SUMMARY: Postfix/Solaris resolver issues (n2a)

The problem seems to be fixed now. Casper Dik gave me the solution:

Postfix's chrooted environment was located on a partition that was mounted

Thanks for the help,

resolver libraries, in fact the command strings shows the apropriate string

documentation on this, so can someone give me a hint? Is it Solaris-related
