    Wthout getting any kind of error report, I can not read mail from users I make.

    In Outlook express aswell as eubimiau .

    I have read some topics but could not find the solution.

    Sending mail from teh new accounts is working OK but when someone else sends mail it seems to arrive but In the users account it is not shown.

    Who can help me?

    Is this your server's public IP address? 84.245.3.38

    Yes, it is a registered IP adress.
    I do get to see the mail that is sent to the admin user, but not the new user I make.
    I didn't mention this yet. Maybe it helps

    Can you post an excerpt of the mail log when you send an email to the admin and another email to another user?

    Sorry, but what is an excerpt.

    Do you mean the sourcecode of the message

    I did this but still not working.

    I tried something.
    I added a new user but this time I gave him webspace aswell.
    This time it did work and the user is getting mail.

    So I deleted the webmaster account and empty'd the trashcan.
    And made the same account again this time with webspace.
    But again it didn't work.

    Finally I got it working.

    Again I deleted the account and set it it again.
    But this time I gave the emailadres an new username and password.

    Then it worked.

    So now myquestion is, could there be a bug when deleting users and then making a new user with the same name and password as before.
    Because as far as I can see this is what happened

    I've tested so much, and never seen something like this. When you delete a user, it's completely deleted (from /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, ...), so I don't know how it can conflict with a new user which happens to have the same password. :confused:

    Well, then it's probably just a glitsh in my system.

    Anyway , Thanks for your help.
