Its been a while since I've last posted, which as always is good (no news = good news), but lately I am having this issue where mailboxes for new virtual users aren't created.
The server was a Ubuntu 8.10 one and after it crashed I reinstalled to a fresh 10.04 (following the 9.10 virtual users how-to). I transferred settings and all the old mailboxes and everything is working fine.
When I create a new account in the db and send a first mail to it to initialize it, the mailbox for that account is not created under /home/vmail. My .cf files are all
-rw-r----- 1 root postfix
, the vmail directory is
drwxr-xr-x 3 vmail vmail
and our domain.name directory is
drwx------ 19 vmail vmail
. Finally, each of the old mailbox directories are
drwx------ 5 vmail vmail
Do you see anything fishy with permissions?
When I telnet the server for pop, I see the following error in my mail.log file:
pop3d: chdir domain.name/mailbox/: No such file or directory
...where 'domain.name' is our domain and 'mailbox' is the username/account I try to log in with.
Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this further?
