If the commands wont help, try this to reinstall maildrop:

sudo update-alternatives --remove-all maildir.5
sudo update-alternatives --remove-all maildirquota.7
sudo apt-get install --reinstall maildrop

Hi,

I first tried to reinstall ispconfig 3.0.1.6 running the update.php script in the install folder with the reconfigure services option

I then ran the:

chmod 755 /var/run/courier/authdaemon/
chmod +s /usr/bin/maildrop

Followed by editing the master.cf file, changing:

Code:
maildrop  unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe
  flags=R user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop -d vmail ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${nexthop} ${sender}
to

Code:
maildrop  unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe
  flags=R user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop -d ${recipient} ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${nexthop} ${sender}
I then tried to reinstall maildrop with the following:

sudo update-alternatives --remove-all maildir.5
sudo update-alternatives --remove-all maildirquota.7
sudo apt-get install --reinstall maildrop


Still have the same errors in the queue

Thanks,

Try to run:

chown -R vmail:vmail /var/vmail

and please change the lines in master.cf back as this was not the reason.

I take it back, queue flushed, but emails all bounced... that's not good...

I have a backup of the /var/spool/postfix folder from earlier this afternoon if I restore that Do you think my queues will get recovered?

Hi,

I ran :
maildrop -V 9 -d webmaster@domain.com

and I ge the result:

maildrop: authlib: groupid=5000
maildrop: authlib: userid=5000
maildrop: authlib: logname=webmaster@domain.com, home=/var/vmail, mail=/var/vmail/domain.com/webmaster
maildrop: Changing to /var/vmail

And it hangs there..

with an eventual:

"maildrop: Timeout quota exceeded."
