    Hi, I followed perfect lenny ISP 3 guide and with small changes everything went fine except that i cant receive emails.

    This installation is in Linux-VServers and Lenny and everything is installed according to the guide except the quota part ( not available in this virtualization)

    This is from mail.log

    Permissions are all fine.

    I Googled whole day without success, probably this issue is related with the quota.

    Any hints?

    I don't think that there is a permission issue.

    Also I forget to write, I can send an email without a problem.

    As I said before can this be because my partition is mounted without a Quota ?

    What's your ISPConfig version?

    The latest one " ISPConfig ".

    I installed ISPConfig 3 on same identical server only this time mounted with quota, all conf files and permissions are same as before .

    Everything is working OK now.

    Same problem

    I'm having the same problem as you do. What do you mean by "mounted with quota". You have configured quota in your system?
    I followed every step on the perfect server guide for debian lenny but i'm stuck with the problem of deferred mails.
    Can someone give me any advise?

    I'm running Debian Lenny and ISPConfig-
    The error is:
    May 5 20:47:44 sipsda0005 postfix/pipe[29258]: 764354A81E0: to=<>, relay=maildrop, delay=6262, delays=6262/0.08/0/0.06, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to change to home directory. )

    .mailfilter is receiving everything empty:
    .mailfilter(5): LOGNAME=""
    .mailfilter(6): EXTENSION=""
    .mailfilter(7): RECIPIENT=""
    .mailfilter(8): USER=""
    .mailfilter(9): HOST=""
    .mailfilter(10): SENDER=""

    If you followed the guide, then you have quota enabled. So that should be ok.

    Please ost the output of:

    ls -la /var/vmail/

    and the content of the postfix file.

    I did not change any of postfix configuration files, it was all made automatically by ispconfig installation

    The domain directory in the vmail folder has the wrong owner. Please run:

    chown -R vmail:vmail /var/vmail

    to fix this.

    The owner was set when i created the domain and the mailbox using the web control panel.
    I changed them as you say but i still have the same problem:

    Please change line for the vmail user in the /etc/passwd file to:

    I guess that there was a vmail user present in /etc/passwd before ispconfig was installed.
