Is there any special reason why you want you're mailboxes saved within the default Apache2 webserver path (/var/www)?

Obviously the use who runs postfix, dovecot & co (which is "vmail" by default, I guess) doesn't has all necessary permissions for the mentioned folder.

You can change the owner and group to "vmail" - but this will probably cause some issues with your webserver.

What's the output of "ls -l" within the /var directory?

The root cause of this error message is, some web application was trying to send out email, but it was returned/bounced by some reason. So mail server will try to deliver this returned/bounced mail to Apache user, it's system user www-data by default, and its HOME directory (/var/www) is considered as maildir.

The solution is simple, choose one of them:

- Disable sending email in web applications. I guess this is impossible for you, so here comes second one:
- Create an alias in Postfix (/etc/postfix/aliases), forward all mails for www-data to a real mail user.
- Do nothing if you don't need/want to check these returned/bounced mails. Simply ignore them.
