    In my mail log im getting errors such as

    Aug 11 21:53:19 server1 imapd-ssl: Connection, ip=[::1]
    Aug 11 21:53:19 server1 imapd-ssl: [email protected]: chdir(/var/vmail) failed!!
    Aug 11 21:53:19 server1 imapd-ssl: error: No such file or directory
    Aug 11 21:53:19 server1 imapd-ssl: LOGIN FAILED, user=[email protected], ip=[::1]

    Aug 11 21:55:01 server1 postfix/smtpd[2064]: disconnect from localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]
    Aug 11 21:59:46 server1 postfix/qmgr[1746]: DDAC82C058E: from=, size=2016, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
    Aug 11 21:59:46 server1 postfix/pipe[2106]: DDAC82C058E: to=, relay=maildrop, delay=1168, delays=1168/0.03/0/0.03, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: ERR: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: Permission denied /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to change to home directory. )

    which prevent me from logging onto my imap server, I have messages queued up waiting to come in. The error started after i was tinkering with some auto signup forms to create clients and mailbox domains which i did incorrectly a few times, not sure if that set this off.

    Anyone know whats going on?

    Also:

    Aug 11 22:01:46 server1 imapd: authentication error: No such file or directory
    Aug 11 22:02:13 server1 imapd-ssl: authentication error: No such file or directory

    and:

    Aug 11 22:01:46 server1 imapd: error: No such file or directory
    Aug 11 22:01:46 server1 imapd: authentication error: No such file or directory
    Aug 11 22:02:13 server1 imapd-ssl: [email protected]: chdir(/var/vmail) failed!!
    Aug 11 22:02:13 server1 imapd-ssl: error: No such file or directory

    I fear I may have royally screwed my system. I don't have a /var/vmail directory, looks like a fresh install is in order.
