Default Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, [...] (Ubuntu 11.10) - no dir

hi!

I followed this tutorial to the letter (http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-us...l-ubuntu-11.10)

however, after mailing a welcome message, postfix does not create a Maildir in /home/vmail. instead, it creates a file with the username in /var/mail/.

this is my error message in /var/log/mail.log:
Code:
May  1 20:57:04 h2025044 imapd: chdir herr-webdesign.de/alex/: No such file or directory
May  1 20:57:04 h2025044 imapd: alex@herr-webdesign.de: No such file or directory
what can I do?

What's the output of
Code:
grep alex /etc/passwd
? I guess that alex is a system user...

Yes he is.

Also, I suppose now that it won't work since herr-webdesign.de is the FQDN I supplied postfix with, so in effect it is the local domain and not a virtual one.

So in recollection, I suppose I did not follow your How-To correctly, for I should have used something like mail.herr-webdesign.de or server1.herr-webdesign.de for the local domain right?

If that's what's causing the trouble, is it possible for me to change that now or should I rather start from scratch?

Best regards.

Yes, that's right.

You can change the hostname in /etc/mailname and /etc/hostname.
