As posted in a previous thread, I had a bunch of user maildirs disappear over the weekend. When I checked the mail logs I saw that messages destined for the missing maildirs were being bounced (Nov 19 06:31:39 gx postfix/local: 3B9B26D403D: to=<[email protected][email protected] The user referenced here has an entry in /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow, has an entry in /etc/postfix/virtusertable, and an entry in /etc/courier/userdb. He does not have a home dir or a Maildir. My previous experience have been mostly with sendmail and qmail. If the user's Maildir has bad permissions or is missing, shouldn't postfix be doing a TEMPFAIL instead of a BOUNCE?
