Default Can't get any incoming e-mails.

I moved e-mails from an old server to this one copying the /var/vmail directory.

Set the directory permissions:
sudo chown -R vmail:vmail /var/vmail

However, I am not getting any new e-mails. I created all the e-mail accounts by hand on the new server.

I keep getting this error:

postfix/pipe[12612]: CCEB72248B: to=, relay=maildrop, delay=0.16, delays=0.06/0.01/0/0.09, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: ERR: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: Permission denied /usr/bin/maildrop: Invalid permissions on the filter file - world-writable. )

The /var/vmail directory or one of the subdirectories is world writable as the error message states. Change all subdirectories recursively to 700 and /var/vmail to 755:

chmod 755 /var/vmail
chmod -R 700 /var/vmail/*

Before changing the DNS settings and using the new server is there any way I can check to see if the server really is accepting new e-mails?

I changed the DNS settings last night and waited for them to propagate and had to change them back when I got no e-mails going through.

Login to webmail on the server and send yourself a email to the same account that you used to login with webmail.

Then look into your mail log file to see why it did not work.

I even tried creating an new account that hasn't been transferred over and even sending an e-mail to myself did not work.

Strangely the e-mail is showing up in the sent box.

However, it is not showing up in the inbox....
