how to create new email account?
 
Hello!
I have suse9.3, postfix. I create new user with home directory /var/spool/mail but I got following error:

Log In Error: Access denied: Your account is temporarily unavailable (+t bit set on home directory).
I have not ISPConfig.

What is an error?

When do you get the error? When logging in with POP3?
Can you post
Code:

ls -l /var/spool/mail<username>
and
Code:

ls -l /homedir/of/<username>
?

Ok, but can you post the output of
Code:

ls -l /var/spool/mail/<username>
and
Code:

ls -l /homedir/of/<username>
here?

suse:/ # ls -l /var/spool/mail/intars
/bin/ls: /var/spool/mail/intars: No such file or directory
and
suse:/ # ls -l /var/spool/mail/intars
/bin/ls: /var/spool/mail/intars: No such file or directory

How can I create these files???

Do you use Maildir or mbox? Which POP3 daemon do you use? Did you follow any of the howtos to set up your server? If so, which one?

I am Linux beginner user. I installed Suse9.3 after The Perfect Setup - SUSE 9.3 Version 1.0 guide. Author: Falko Timme <ft@falkotimme.com>.
The thing is that I do not use ISPConfig, Proftpd, Webalizer, netdate and have not Installed Perl Modules.
Via root shell using #telnet localhost 25,#mail from: <xxx@xx.xx> and
#rcpt to: <yyy@yy.yy> really sends the message and the adresee receives it. I do not know, what is Maildir and mbox. That is why I cannot tell what exactly do I use.
As far as I understand the problem is with users mail directory or some alias files locatins - or I just do not know how to create a new user.

If you have followed the Perfect Setup guide for SuSE 9.3 then you have also installed Courier, as described here: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_suse_9.3_p5, right?
Did you also do these steps?
Code:

postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
postconf -e 'mailbox_command ='
/etc/init.d/postfix restart
