    Hi,

    ISPC 2 Version: 2.2.40 on Fedora 15.

    Everything worked fine till todays morning. Created new site, added new user and when I want to login to mail I've got such error:

    Dec 20 08:57:31 fed dovecot: pop3-login: Login: user=<web24_ttt>, method=PLAIN, rip=1.1.1.1, lip=2.2.2.2, mpid=25798
    Dec 20 08:57:31 fed dovecot: pop3(web24_ttt): Error: user web24_ttt: Initialization failed: mail_location not set and autodetection failed: Mail storage autodetection failed with home=/var/www/web24/user/web24_ttt
    Dec 20 08:57:31 fed dovecot: pop3(web24_ttt): Error: Invalid user settings. Refer to server log for more information.

    Also there is no entry in vhosts_ispconfig.conf about new site.

    Is it possible to fix? Where to start?

    TIA

    Try to restart ispconfig and then check again a minute later.

    Everything the same. With old sites everything works fine. With new one, not.

    Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?

    dovecot.conf, what is strange that I have about 8 old sites and when create new email user it works. It does not work on new site.

    ## Dovecot configuration file

    # If you're in a hurry, see http://wiki2.dovecot.org/QuickConfiguration

    # "doveconf -n" command gives a clean output of the changed settings. Use it
    # instead of copy&pasting files when posting to the Dovecot mailing list.

    # '#' character and everything after it is treated as comments. Extra spaces
    # and tabs are ignored. If you want to use either of these explicitly, put the
    # value inside quotes, eg.: key = "# char and trailing whitespace "

    # Default values are shown for each setting, it's not required to uncomment
    # those. These are exceptions to this though: No sections (e.g. namespace {})
    # or plugin settings are added by default, they're listed only as examples.
    # Paths are also just examples with the real defaults being based on configure
    # options. The paths listed here are for configure --prefix=/usr
    # --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var

    # Protocols we want to be serving.
    #protocols = imap pop3

    # A comma separated list of IPs or hosts where to listen in for connections.
    # "*" listens in all IPv4 interfaces, "::" listens in all IPv6 interfaces.
    # If you want to specify non-default ports or anything more complex,
    # edit conf.d/master.conf.
    #listen = *, ::

    # Base directory where to store runtime data.
    #base_dir = /var/run/dovecot/

    # Name of this instance. Used to prefix all Dovecot processes in ps output.
    #instance_name = dovecot

    # Greeting message for clients.
    #login_greeting = Dovecot ready.

    # Space separated list of trusted network ranges. Connections from these
    # IPs are allowed to override their IP addresses and ports (for logging and
    # for authentication checks). disable_plaintext_auth is also ignored for
    # these networks. Typically you'd specify your IMAP proxy servers here.
    #login_trusted_networks =

    # Sepace separated list of login access check sockets (e.g. tcpwrap)
    #login_access_sockets =

    # Show more verbose process titles (in ps). Currently shows user name and
    # IP address. Useful for seeing who are actually using the IMAP processes
    # (eg. shared mailboxes or if same uid is used for multiple accounts).
    #verbose_proctitle = no

    # Should all processes be killed when Dovecot master process shuts down.
    # Setting this to "no" means that Dovecot can be upgraded without
    # forcing existing client connections to close (although that could also be
    # a problem if the upgrade is e.g. because of a security fix).
    #shutdown_clients = yes

    # If non-zero, run mail commands via this many connections to doveadm server,
    # instead of running them directly in the same process.
    #doveadm_worker_count = 0
    # UNIX socket or host:port used for connecting to doveadm server
    #doveadm_socket_path = doveadm-server

    # Space separated list of environment variables that are preserved on Dovecot
    # startup and passed down to all of its child processes. You can also give
    # key=value pairs to always set specific settings.
    #import_environment = TZ

    ##
    ## Dictionary server settings
    ##

    # Dictionary can be used to store key=value lists. This is used by several
    # plugins. The dictionary can be accessed either directly or though a
    # dictionary server. The following dict block maps dictionary names to URIs
    # when the server is used. These can then be referenced using URIs in format
    # "proxy::<name>".

    dict {
    #quota = mysql:/etc/dovecot/dovecot-dict-sql.conf.ext
    #expire = sqlite:/etc/dovecot/dovecot-dict-sql.conf.ext
    }

    # Most of the actual configuration gets included below. The filenames are
    # first sorted by their ASCII value and parsed in that order. The 00-prefixes
    # in filenames are intended to make it easier to understand the ordering.
    !include conf.d/*.conf

    # A config file can also tried to be included without giving an error if
    # it's not found:
    !include_try local.conf

    Added to /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-mail.conf
    mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir

    and it started working.
