    Good morning.
    Yesterday I decided after had a succesfull upgrade of ISPConfig Beta1 to Beta 2 on the development server, I decided to upgrade to the live server.

    The only difrence between them is that the development server doesnt do email, for the rest they are both the same.

    Anyhow: this morning I looked into my mailboxes to read the loggings and I got a bit confused, (didnt had my coffee yet), there was no email.
    I start looking into it and I found:

    The errors I get is:

    Sep 2 09:10:00 amatek postfix/pipe[29742]: E3F6EB61C8: to=, relay=maildrop, delay=838, delays=838/0.02/0/0.1, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to open mailbox. )
    Sep 2 09:10:00 amatek maildrop[29752]: Unable to open mailbox.

    my postconf -n output is:

    virtual_uid_maps = static:5000

    Im using Fedora 10, build with the perfect server guide and never had any problems, most of the times I get linux apps to run as they should be.

    Anyone have a suggestion where I have too look. As I said its the live server and Im in big-shit-pool right now.

    Im really embarrised right now having to ask this all.. :(
