First let me thank you for your incredible work with your tutorials.
I've been following your documentations for years and they are far the bests among others I could find.
So thank you very much!
My problem is that I have set up a server using this tutorial:
The Perfect Server - Debian Squeeze (Debian 6.0) With BIND & Courier [ISPConfig 3]
All steps done successfully.
My pre-installed server has separate /var and /home partitions.
I usually keep stuff (mails,webs,etc.) under /home, so I ordered the install with a large (1.5TB) /home partition and a relatively small(20GB) /var partition.
Therefore, I need to change the maildir from /var/vmail to /home/vmail.
EDIT: I have copied /var/vmail to /home/vmail to keep all previously created data.
I have made the change in ISPConfig, but maildrop still tries to put mails to /var/vmail
I was getting this error message when sent a test letter:
maildrop: Unable to change to home directory.
postfix/pipe: 30CDCC0067: to=<...>, relay=maildrop, delay=50958, delays=50958/0.03/0/0.07, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to change to home directory. )
I have searched the system for "/var/vmail" with "grep -r" and found that I have a postfix entry in main.cf that was something "like virtual_mailbox_mail = /var/vmail".
I have changed it to /home/vmail, restarted postfix and all mail-related processes, but still no avail.
Edit: I have changed /var/vmail to /var/vmail.bak to see what happens, and now it is saying:
maildrop: Unable to create a dot-lock at /var/vmail/.....
postfix/pipe: 30CDCC0067: to=<....>, relay=maildrop, delay=67707, delays=67707/0.09/0/0.05, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to create a dot-lock at /var/vmail/...)
EDIT: If I rename /var/vmail.bak back to /var/vmail then the mails are delivered correctly to /var/vmail but I of course cannot see them in a client, as courier search for them in /home/vmail (because it is set in ispconfig)
Could you have any idea that can point me to the right direction?
Thank you in advance! Have a great day!
