    Hello, I just wanted to know if this the right place to ask if someone can have a look at my Console log from my MacBook 13.3" OS X Leopard 10.5.6. I am new to Mac and want to understand what some of these log entries mean and if everything looks normal. Thanks in advance. Trevor

    Thank you for the reply, I will try the terminal commands to recreate the directory, and yes I also have restored once from Time Capsule. Thanks again and I'll let you know how it goes.:apple: Trevor

    Not sure that would be a big deal anyway, considering you're most likely not running a full-blown Postfix install anyway.

    What is a post fix install? Should I try something else as well? Thank you. Trevor

    The directory isn't restored when restoring from Time Machine and OS X just seems to beg for the existence of it nonetheless. :rolleyes:

    Console is there to find the causes of problems you're having, not generally to find problems. If everything is working properly, I wouldn't worry about it.

    By the way, cross-posting is frowned upon.

    Postfix is an email service that comes with OS X. Don't worry about it, and follow the Eidorian's advice.

    I used terminal sudo mkdir /var/spool/postfix then sudo postfix stop then sudo postfix start. Here is a fresh start up console log. Thanks again. Trevor

    For your own sanity, I wouldn't keep watching it. :)

    Unless you have some issues with your system, there's really no need to be diving in there.

    Please. Go and learn how RAM works, how to program in Cocoa and C++ and about the Unix file system, then come back here and ask these questions, but by that time you'll realize that what your asking is more pointless than watching paint dry.
