Because I can not get dscl to play nice. I need a user of vmail and a
group of vmail with u and g id of 5000.
I have made more complex ports in the past that added users, and those
always worked. Since I can not get a OS X user made on the cli, I
figure, I can coax ports into doing the work for me.
This is back to my other threads on postfix/dovecot/mysql
I seem to be able to auth against mysql, pop login via telnet, I can
telnet to port 25 and start an smtp email, and even imap login. I
have not bothered with the ssl/tls parts of the above protocols yet.
When I do an smtp telnet to 25, set mail from rcpt to, data, and then
send an email, it queues it, but looking at the log, I end up with
this, which leads me to belive a permissions or user/group issue.
Mail can not be delivered for some reason.

Very few people seem to have gotten this to work on OS X. Very few as
in I believe I know of one other person, there is nothing at all out
there from others on OS X making this combo work.
I am poking the postfix mailing list as well, see what that gets me.
The portfile certainly needs a few patches, but I need to figure out
what they are first, then I can submit a diff.
