    Hello to everybody.
    I'm trying to realize a local mailserver that will connect with a dialup connection to a main mailserver.
    To send emails, I've realized an email relay with queues.
    To receive emails, I want to configure getmail on the local mailserver with a POP3 connection to the main mailserver.
    As you can see on the link, there are some configurations explained.

    The problem is that, in the local server, I've configured postfix with virtual accounts (and queries from a mysql database). The default mailbox is
    virtual_mailbox_base = /var/vmail
    and on the main mailserver(realized with perfectserver and ISPConfig3), every time that I receive an email, I'll find it in /var/vmail/domain/user/new
    Well on this local server, I have nothing in /var/vmail and so I don't know in the getmail configuration what I've to put into [destination] section.

    Somebody may give me some good suggestions?

    In this case I'd try something like this:

    type = MDA_external
    path = /usr/sbin/sendmail
    arguments = ("-i", "-bm", "[email protected]")
    unixfrom = true

    Ok solved...
    I used:
    type = Maildir
    path = /var/vmail/domain/user/
