    Hi folks,

    CentOS 4.4 amd64

    On;
    Virtual Users With Postfix, PostfixAdmin, Courier, Mailscanner, ClamAV On CentOS - Page 5
    http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_users_postfix_courier_mailscanner_clamav_centos_p5

    I was stuck on;
    [root@host satimis]# maildirmake /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1
    Code:
    maildirmake: No such file or directory
    
    Whether I need to replace it with;
    [root@host satimis]# mkdir -p /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1/public_html

    followed by;
    [root@host satimis]# maildirmake /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1/Maildir

    [root@host satimis]# maildirmake -q 20971520S /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1/Maildir

    then
    [root@host satimis]# chmod g-r,o-r /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1/Maildir/maildirsize

    [root@host satimis]# chown -R mail.mail /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1


    using /mail OR /vmail on the directory path and "vmail.vmail" ???

    Pls advise. TIA

    I suggest you try this:
    Code:
    mkdir -p /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1
    maildirmake /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1
    You also might have to adjust the ownership of the directory.

    [root@host satimis]# mkdir -p /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1
    [root@host satimis]# maildirmake /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1
    Code:
    maildirmake: File exists
    
    [root@host satimis]# maildirmake -q 20971520S /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1

    (just hanging here for prolonged time)
    I have to press [Ctrl]+c to exit it.

    # ls -l /opt/mail/testdomain.com | grep user1
    Code:
    drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 Apr 11 21:54 user1
    

    Edit:

    Further down to "Vacation Install"

    [root@host ~]# cat /etc/passwd | grep vacation
    Code:
    vacation:x:1002:1002::/var/spool/vacation:/sbin/nologin
    
    Do I need to manually change it as:
    Code:
    vacation:*:65501:65501::0:0:Virtual Vacation:/nonexistent:/sbin/nologin
    
    ???

    Tks

    cause of problem discovered

    Hi folks,

    I left out "vi /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/imapd" on P-4

    Re-did it. Then as root re-ran;
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/mysql.server start
    /etc/init.d/saslauthd start
    /etc/init.d/courier-authlib start
    /etc/init.d/courier-imap start
    /etc/init.d/postfix start
    
    All went through w/o problem.

    Continued on P-5
    # rmdir /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1

    # maildirmake /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1
    # maildirmake -q 20971520S /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1
    # chmod g-r,o-r /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1
    # chown -R vmail.vmail /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1

    All went through w/o complaint.


    # ls -l /opt/mail/testdomain.com/
    Code:
    total 4
    drwx------  5 vmail vmail 4096 Apr 12 18:44 user1
    
    # ls -l /opt/mail/testdomain.com/user1/
    Code:
    total 16
    drwx------  2 vmail vmail 4096 Apr 12 18:44 cur
    -rw-r--r--  1 vmail vmail   36 Apr 12 18:44 maildirsize
    drwx------  2 vmail vmail 4096 Apr 12 18:44 new
    drwx------  2 vmail vmail 4096 Apr 12 18:44 tmp
    

    Continued

    perl, perl-DBI and perl-DBD-MySQL already installed.

    # yum search perl | grep 'perl.x86_64'
    Code:
    ...          
    perl.x86_64                              3:5.8.5-36.RHEL4       base            
    perl.x86_64                              3:5.8.5-36.RHEL4       installed       
    
    # yum search perl | grep 'perl-DBI.x86_64'
    Code:
    perl-DBI.x86_64                          1.40-8                 base            
    perl-DBI.x86_64                          1.40-8                 installed
    
    # yum search perl | grep 'perl-DBD-MySQL.x86_64'
    Code:
    perl-DBD-MySQL.x86_64                    2.9004-3.1             base            
    perl-DBD-MySQL.x86_64                    2.9004-3.1             installed       
    
    Coming to;
    Code:
    useradd –d /var/spool/vacation -s /sbin/nologin vacation
    
    Re-do it

    [root@host satimis]# useradd –d /var/spool/vacation -s /sbin/nologin vacation
    Code:
    bash: useradd: command not found
    
    [root@host satimis]# which useradd
    Code:
    /usr/bin/which: no useradd in (/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/lib/courier-imap/bin:/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/satimis/bin)
    
    [root@host satimis]# su -
    [root@host ~]# which useradd
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/useradd
    
    Must be super root to run this command???

    [root@host ~]# useradd –d /var/spool/vacation -s /sbin/nologin vacation
    Code:
    usage: useradd  [-u uid [-o]] [-g group] [-G group,...] 
                    [-d home] [-s shell] [-c comment] [-m [-k template]]
                    [-f inactive] [-e expire ] [-p passwd] [-M] [-n] [-r] [-l] name
           useradd  -D [-g group] [-b base] [-s shell]
                    [-f inactive] [-e expire ]
    
    # cat /etc/passwd | grep vacation
    Code:
    vacation:x:1002:1002::/var/spool/vacation:/sbin/nologin
    
    Stuck here. Any suggestion??? TIA
