    Hello, All.

    I had a server (Debian) with ISPConfig, postfix and dovecot configured.
    Accidentally i changed permissions on all my file system (chown root:users / -R).
    After restoring permissions for postfix and some other essential services (i've mo nitored errors on /var/log/syslog) everything was fine. But later I realized, that new mails are now delivering to /var/mail/user_name instead of /home/www/web##/user/web##_user_name/mail/.imap/

    None of config files was changed, so i think that incorrect permissions on some files is the reason for it. Ofcourse only new mails are visible now via imap.

    I want at least to import all my old mail to new location. And ofcource will be better to restore old behavior (delivering mails to /home/www/bla-bla...).

    Please, help.

    postfix's main.cf:

    virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable
    local_recipient_maps = $virtual_maps, unix:passwd.byname
    mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names
    myorigin = /etc/mailname
    relayhost =
    mynetworks = my_ips_here
    mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
    mailbox_size_limit = 0
    recipient_delimiter = +
    inet_interfaces = all
    smtpd_client_restrictions = permit_mynetworks permit_sasl_authenticated
    smtp_helo_name = mail.my_domain_here

    /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf:

    protocols = imap imaps pop3 pop3s
    imap_listen = *
    pop3_listen = *
    imaps_listen = *
    pop3s_listen = *
    login_chroot = yes
    login = imap
    login = pop3
    mail_extra_groups = mail
    auth = default
    auth_mechanisms = plain
    auth_userdb = passwd
    auth_passdb = pam
    auth_user = root
    auth_debug = yes

    what else can help?

    What's in your mail log when you send an email to your server?

    maildir format

    and my maildir has strange format. it consist of some files:
    .customflags
    .imap.index
    .imap.index.data
    .imap.index.log
    .imap.index.tree
    and they are located here ~/mail/.imap/INBOX

    I cannot find description of this format in google. is it Maildir or what?

    Code:
    ls -la
    ?

    Well.. good for you to solve it, but how ? I have the same problem,
    the postfix writes the delivered mail with 0600 instead with 0755 premissions. How can I fix that ?

    The permission 0600 is fine for emails, emails are always stored with these permissions and not 0755.

    well, then why do I get this when trying to access local mail:

    Code:
    dovecot: Mar 04 03:11:06 Error: IMAP(x-spirit): open(/home/x-spirit/Maildir/cur/1236157865.V80bId7018fM539656.ns:2,) failed: Permission denied
    dovecot: Mar 04 03:11:07 Error: IMAP(x-spirit): open(/home/x-spirit/Maildir/cur/1236157865.V80bId7018fM539656.ns:2,) failed: Permission denied
    
    and when I chmod the mail to 755 - it works fine ?

    This forum and thread is for the software ISPConfig but the error log you posted can not be from a ISPConfig installation. maybe you posted your questions in the wrong context?
