I ran the commands from /etc/mail
It has the correct permissions as you wrote above.
I chowned root.root /etc/mail/virtusertable.db

Not a good thing to do, but the server is running and tx/rx email.

This is a server that had a very old (original version) of BQ.
We did an update and had many issues to deal with...
