I followed Inco's instruction, but I don't really know what it does, I was just hoping for something simple that would work.

I use next configuration

maildrop unix - n n - - pipe
flags=R user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop -dvmail ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${domain} ${sender}

work fine. ubuntu 8.10
I tried Inco's solution with jpb77's extra space added, on a fresh complete reinstallation.

Now it's working with Inco's solution, but you must put a space between "-d" and "vmail":

flags=R user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop -d vmail ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${domain} ${sender}

Thanks Inco.
It did not work for me. I get the same error.

I also get the same result as gemini:

Does the maildrop use some cache or something or should it use straight from mysql? Because I don't see any queries to DB.
But I can see my e-mail user in the MySQL ispconfigdb mail_user table!!!???

maildrop -d [without the underscores]

produces the same "Invalid user specified" message for me that gemini got.

I would like to use ISPConfig as a no-brainer IMAP mailbox auto-config, but I'm willing to learn how to make a mail-server run from scratch if I must.

What did you mean exactly?
This user already has no spamfilter applied, and no other rules of any kind applied.
Exactly how do I tell ISPConfig to accept bad headers, and if I do, aren't I defeating spam filtering and Clam Antivirus?
