Postfix problem with maildrop courier-authlib (user unknown. Command output: Invalid user specified.)

I’ve recently updated installed ports by the use of portupgrade. After that I was found problem with my MTA system (Postfix) out of order:

When I sended message to some e-mail on server (postfix clients in mysql) I saw that in maillog:
postfix/pipe[5895]: 6201FE37CE7: to=<anton@howtobsd.com>, relay=maildrop, delay=0.04, delays=0/0/0/0.03, dsn=5.1.1, status=bounced (user unknown. Command output: Invalid user specified. )
To senter returned answer from my server:

“This is the mail system at host mail.howtobsd.com.

I checked maildrop…

I have thought it have to be buit with courier-authlib:

#cd /usr/ports/mail/maildrop && make deinstall
#vim /usr/ports/mail/maildrop/Makefile

uncomment line: WITH_AUTHLIB=yes

#maildrop -v

It’s Ok!Trying send message and check (in log new problem):

postfix/pipe[59663]: 23414E37EC3: to=, relay=maildrop, delay=24, delays=24/0/0/0.07, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. command output: ERR: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: Permission denied /usr/local/bin/maildrop: Temporary authentication failure.)

check rights:
# cd /usr/local/bin/ && la -la | grep maildrop
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root mail 1239752 Apr 29 10:12 maildrop

it is need +s (edit rights) :

# ls -la /usr/local/bin/ | grep maildrop
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root mail 1239752 Apr 29 11:53 maildrop

And after that manipulation maildrop can transport mail in boxes…
