    The permissions are fine, the mailbox is owned by the correct user and should work.

    Is dom2 the first and only mailbox of the domain

    it works now for dom2 because it was the second mailbox for this domain

    i created a new domain there is the problem again. here the outputs:

    ls -la /var/vmail/
    total 0
    drwx------ 3 vmail vmail 3896 2012-01-13 10:13 .
    drwx------ 3 root root 3896 2012-01-13 10:13 ..
    drwx------ 9 vmail vmail 3896 2012-01-13 10:13 Maildir
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 70 2012-01-13 10:13 .sieve

    after listing the /etc/vmail I found that mail domains have diverse permissions:

    drwx------  8 vmail vmail 4096 2011-12-19 17:54
    drwxr-xr-x  3 vmail vmail 4096 2011-11-22 23:14
    drwx------  3 vmail vmail 4096 2011-07-27 21:14
    drwxr-xr-x  3 vmail vmail 4096 2012-01-14 15:33
    Where 700 are from my old mail domains and 755 from my recents mail domains.

    I use Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and ISPConfig

    Till what is right?
