    Mail (postfix/courier) was working fine on my server till yesterday night. All of sudden I get this error in

    Jun 30 14:13:08 chades pop3d: chdir /var/vmail//var/vmail/ No such file or directory
    Jun 30 14:13:09 chades pop3d: chdir /var/vmail//var/vmail/ No such file or directory

    It tries to chdir to var/vmail//var/vmail/...

    I searched everywhere to find out why it puts the mailbox base infront of the mailbox path making an non-existing path but I could not find anything. Cause of this path the mail delivery does not work.

    Relative settings on my postfix's

    virtual_alias_domains =
    virtual_alias_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/, mysql:/etc/postfix/
    virtual_gid_maps = static:303
    virtual_mailbox_base = /var/vmail
    virtual_mailbox_domains = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/
    virtual_mailbox_limit_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/
    virtual_mailbox_limit_override = yes
    virtual_mailbox_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/
    virtual_maildir_extended = yes
    virtual_maildir_limit_message = "The user you are trying to reach is over quota."
    virtual_minimum_uid = 303
    virtual_overquota_bounce = yes
    virtual_transport = maildrop
    virtual_uid_maps = static:303

    I searched the ISPConfig database, the postfix configuration, the mailbox permissions. I found nothing.

    Note that the server was working fine till yesterday and I did nt changed anything to it! How this problem appeared and how to solve it? Any ideas? Thanks in advanced.

    No... I solved the problem by creating a symlink from /var/vmail/var/vmail/ to /var/vmail/. Thanks.
