Missing main.cf Error - MTA

If you see a log event like the following :

postfix/postqueue[8739]: fatal: open /opt/zimbra/postfix- No such file or directory 

All you need to do is create an empty main.cf file and zimbra will rewrite it.

 su - zimbra
 touch main.cf

Ownership should be :

-rw-r--r-- 1 zimbra zimbra   4414 Mar 27 05:52 main.cf 

When you now do something to start the mta, it will generate the values for main.cf
