    Dear ISPConfig,

    Recently i've discovered one problem on Courirer mail server installed on ISPConfig with CentOS 6.3:

    - When i tried to change vmail Path in ISPConfig Control Panel from /var/vmail/... to /home/vmail/... everything seems to be ok... I can create new mailbox and it was created in /home/vmail/... but after that i can't receive any emails. It is a bug or i need to make change settings in elsewhere?

    - So i reverse back setting to /var/vmail/... so i still can receive emails...

    Please help me to resolve this issue...

    Either you missed to copy the.mailfilter file from /var/vmail to /home/vmail or you did not alter the paths in the .mailfilter file. Please note that the path can not be changed after you created the first mailbox in ispconfig, if you change it afterwards, then all existing mailboxes will fail and you must either delete them or change mailbox paths in the ispconfig database manually.
