Hi there I've just installed ISPConfig 3 on a system that had a mail service without a control panel managing mail (bunch of scripts that handled that, history etc). Everything with install has gone very well, there was an issue with the uid:gid for vmail but I fixed that easily. Mail is being delivered & sent OK. It's an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS setup. Postfix / Dovecot / SA and ClamAV. I followed the instructions for the perfect server setup but prefer Dovecot over Courier. One problem, in the mail.err log I can see errors appearing relating to Amavis. I understand that Amavis sits between Postfix /Dovecot and various mail filters. The error: Jul 1 11:00:02 servername dovecot: deliver(amavis): mkdir(/var/vmail//amavis/Maildir/cur) failed: Permission denied (euid=113(amavis) egid=115(amavis) missing +w perm: /var/vmail/) I can see why the permission errors are happening as /var/vmail is owned by vmail and it looks like the user trying to mkdir is amavis. From the look of the logs, the errors happen in multiples of 5 minute blocks to the second but not every 5 minutes. My questions are: 1. Why is the user amavis trying to mkdir within /var/vmail 2. What's missing in the "/var/vmail//amavis" path - I'm assuming this should be /var/vmail/domain.name/mailbox/amavis/Maildir/cur ? - somewhere along the line the domain and mailbox is being lost. Any help would be much appreciated. I'm not in the habit of creating +w permissions so I'd rather find a fix further upstream, espec since part of the path is missing. Thanks!
