  1. having a look at the post you suggested solved the problem with TLS support messages.
  2. As for the mail bouncer so I'll go and have a chat with IT department once agian.
  3. Describing the folder tree in Thunderbird is kind of difficult if english is not your native language so I just made a screen shot. As you see in the account CPM the tree sturcture is a bit defferent from the new server Alpheratz.

    I've checked the Maildir checkbox on the email settings tab in ISPConfig. Is it that what you mean? So if I done this the tape backup of /home/www/web6 would save all users' emails.

Thanks agian!

That's right. I hope you are using a POP3/IMAP server that supports Maildir, such as Courier?

Today morning I've read these messages in my mail-log:
Code:
Feb  3 09:00:22 alpheratz postfix/cleanup[9982]: warning: database /etc/postfix/virtusertable.db is older than source file /etc/postfix/virtusertable
Feb  3 09:00:22 alpheratz postfix/pickup[9333]: 16E9027094: uid=0 from=<root>
Feb  3 09:00:22 alpheratz postfix/trivial-rewrite[9983]: warning: database /etc/postfix/virtusertable.db is older than source file /etc/postfix/virtusertable
is it agian something I have to worry about or is it more or less harmless?
The Inbox tree structure as described in my previous post... does this have someting to do with the Maildir thing? (Sorry in beforehand if it is one of the questions some people get laugh at )

Do you edit /etc/postfix/virtusertable manually? If you did, you must run
Code:
postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
afterwards. This command creates /etc/postfix/virtusertable.db from /etc/postfix/virtusertable.

Yes, you can do this only with Maildir and IMAP. If you need a special tree structure, you should have a look at the maildirmake command:
Code:
man maildirmake

Thanks a lot for your hints falco,
I'll consult the manual in respect to the Inbox tree structure.

I even don't know what this file does so I surely didn't change anything in it. Can the installation of some new software change the file? Shall I still run the suggested commands?

Thanks a lot in beforehand.

You should run
Code:
postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
anyway and restart Postfix.

Default mails not delivered...

I thought this message belongs into continuation of this thread rather then starting a separad thread for this issue.

Strangely but my emails are delivered (I am a member of the web) but emails of everybody else are just stuck in /var/spool/mail/

Is there an explanation why the system is so choosy about the user it delivers emails :-(

Thx in advance

If this is any hint to you guys:
if the user creates folder that goes fine... but he can't put any email in this folder.
I can send emails but they are not going to Sent folder
I tried to deactivate Mailsdir in ISPConfig interface and then activate agian (maybe stupid idea but I thought i might help) but with no effect. Actually my Sent folder was empty after that.

Maybe it's a problem with the permissions? Anything in the mail log? Could also be a quota issue.

Falco
  • Logs are ok. I can read there that emails are sent or receive and the /var/spool/mail/userxx files are getting bigger and bigger.
  • I created the web with no limitation of space for the users... can quota still be an issue?
