The user is correct, it should be vmail as in the guide with uid/gid of 5000

I think it has something to do with the line changed in for maildrop:

maildrop unix - n n - - pipe
flags=DRhu user=vmail argv=/usr/local/maildrop/bin/maildrop -d ${user}@${nexthop} ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${nexthop} ${sender}

I am using the falko guide for ubuntu 7.10 and i did have to change the path names in the filter part from:
because that is where the mail and filters are held.

I start getting those errors as soon as i add this section:
VALUES ( '', 'maildrop' ); in the transport table.

Ive checked for type-o's and their dont seem to be any, which is why i think its something to do with the line in (mainly because i dont understand all the ${} stuff, it could be right, but i wouldnt know it. Do you have to change it at all for ubuntu 7.10?

I hope im not the only one that has ran into this and im crossing my fingers its a simple fix, it seems im almost there (if the filters actually work after this)

Also, you said in the how-to that you could filter mail on a per users basis instead of the entire domain. "(important to note you can do this on a purely per email basis ie, all emails but go to the normal virtual transport and by adding in the email address and a maildrop transport)"
How is this done? instead of adding ", maildrop" would you add ", maildrop" instead in the transport table?

Thanks for any and all help.
