Default ISPConfig 3 mail problems

Good morning.
Yesterday I decided after had a succesfull upgrade of ISPConfig Beta1 to Beta 2 on the development server, I decided to upgrade to the live server.

The only difrence between them is that the development server doesnt do email, for the rest they are both the same.

Anyhow: this morning I looked into my mailboxes to read the loggings and I got a bit confused, (didnt had my coffee yet), there was no email.
I start looking into it and I found:

The errors I get is:

Sep 2 09:10:00 amatek postfix/pipe[29742]: E3F6EB61C8: to=, relay=maildrop, delay=838, delays=838/0.02/0/0.1, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to open mailbox. )
Sep 2 09:10:00 amatek maildrop[29752]: Unable to open mailbox.

my postconf -n output is:

virtual_overquota_bounce = yes
virtual_transport = maildrop
virtual_uid_maps = static:5000

Im using Fedora 10, build with the perfect server guide and never had any problems, most of the times I get linux apps to run as they should be.

Anyone have a suggestion where I have too look. As I said its the live server and Im in big-shit-pool right now.

Im really embarrised right now having to ask this all..

There seems to be a problem with the maildrop version in Fedora as it does not seem to use the tolower keyword correctly. See here for a workaround:

Till Brehm
Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
