Thanks Scott, here is the output:

ls -l /etc/group
-rw------- 1 root root 733 Nov  5 14:45 /etc/group

ls -l /path/to/php.ini
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 63K Oct 20 04:03 php.ini

there is no group file in /var/spool/postfix/etc/.  Contents:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   276 Nov  5 16:12 hosts
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  3543 Nov  5 16:12 localtime
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   475 Nov  5 16:12 nsswitch.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root    82 Nov  5 16:12 resolv.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 19398 Nov  5 16:12 services
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root    18 Nov  5 14:19 ssl

grep setgid /etc/postfix/main.cf
output nothing.

Not sure about mailer config, but below is phpinfo:

Thank you so much for looking into it!
