Cool AHA! I incorrectly added jpb77's space to Inco's line!

In

/etc/postfix/master.cf

I put this on the maildrop line:
Code:
  flags=R user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop -dv mail ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${domain} ${sender}
Notice the incorrect "-dv mail".

I should have put THIS on the maildrop line instead:
Code:
  flags=R user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop -d vmail ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${domain} ${sender}
Notice the correct "-d vmail".

A message sent from gmail can now get through.


Thank you friends for your help!


For anyone else in trouble with your install trying to follow along with this thread, I did not find it necessary to replace courier-maildrop with plain old maildrop as in afredriksson's post:

The problem is, at least in Ubuntu, that authlib support is absent in the courier-maildrop package. Once I found out that this was my problem, I was able to get it to work by removing the courier-maildrop package and instead install the standalone maildrop package:

Code:
sudo apt-get remove courier-maildrop
sudo apt-get install maildrop
I don't know where else I need to post this solution, someone please direct me. I am a newbee to this site.

And by the way. WOW! This is a great product! :-)
Even though he reports his switcheroo worked for him.
