Default Maildrop problem

Hi,

I tried to reinstall ispconfig with courier, and now I can't receive mails. Imap authentification works, but when I check in /var/log/mail.log, I get this:

Code:
Jun 16 19:33:42 hostname postfix/pipe[1807]: 9EC7169CC: to=<user@domain.tld>, relay=maildrop, delay=2398, delays=2398/0.04/0/0.01, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: ERR: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: Permission denied /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to change to home directory. )
What am I missing? The Maildir directories exist and have the good owner (vmail:vmail) and rights.
Thx

I Did.

I reinstalled again, it seems the bug occurs when using ispconfig's system->serverconfig->mail panel to change directories (changed /var/vmail to /home/vmail, as it is on a different partition).
The imap server reads the files from the new location, but it seems maildrop still wants to put them in /var/vmail

I tried to change vmail user's home directory, but it doesn't work...

The setting for the mail directory can not be changed, this is not supported. You will have to change it back.

I don't have room on the system partition, what should I do then? And why is the mail folder editable in ispconfig's interface if you can't change it?

edit: It seems to work now, but when I send mail to mailboxes that doesn't exit, the Maildir folders are created.

Default Need more space in the folder /var/vmail

Hi, I have Debian 5, and my filesystem is:

# df
S.ficheros Bloques de 1K Usado Dispon Uso% Montado en
/dev/md1 5162728 1235444 3665028 26% /
tmpfs 2009864 0 2009864 0% /lib/init/rw
udev 10240 92 10148 1% /dev
tmpfs 2009864 0 2009864 0% /dev/shm
/dev/md2 715398792 157468 678901096 1% /home

I try to move the user vmail to /home/vmail but not working.

I have the error:
maildrop[24534]: Unable to create a dot-lock at /var/vmail/xxxxxxx

If you can not move the user folder /var/vmail, can I place in another partition?

Thanks
Pedro

Default Solved

I think I solved.
Let's see what you think

cd /var
mv vmail /home
ln -s /home/vmail vmail

Thus consumption of disk space on the partition /home and mail working perfect.
