Well, does it exist?
It's talking about the symlink you have in /service. Does the dir it points to exist?

If you don't have anything useful in your db it could be a good idea to recreate it.
mysql> drop database vpopmail
the create it again the way the guide tells you to.

You may also find the 'universal' /etc/vpopmail.conf file useful. (Different versions of the mailsystem requires different vpopmail.conf file. This universal thing works with all of them)

Code:

# Read-only DB
localhost|0|vpopmail|password|vpopmail
# Write DB
localhost|0|vpopmail|password|vpopmail
 
MYSQL_UPDATE_SERVER     localhost
MYSQL_UPDATE_USER       vpopmail
MYSQL_UPDATE_PASSWD     password
 
MYSQL_READ_SERVER       localhost
MYSQL_READ_USER         vpopmail
MYSQL_READ_PASSWD       password


Edit: Also delete all files/dirs under /var/vpopmail/domains

okay. . .I set everything up, yet something's quirky with the vadddomain.

Code:

That's what I get when trying to put in my domain.

When I try to remove the domain, this is what happens:

Code:
Warning: Could not access (/var/vpopmail/domains/cruea.net)
Warning: Failed while attempting to delete domain from auth backend
Warning: Failed to delete directory tree: cruea.net


Hmmm. . .can't delete from teh auth backend (mysql). Hmmm.

I've granted all permissions in mysql to vpopmail for vpopmail, too.

Did I miss a step somewhere? I got pulled away from the install several times, so it's possible something got screwed up somewhere.


Code:
touch /var/qmail/control/locals

Followed directions, got it working, but every now and then I get this error and nothing will send nor deliver:

Code:
 /etc/init.d/svscan restart
 * Stopping service scan...                                                                                                                            [ ok ]

 * Starting service scan...                                                                                                                            [ ok ]
druchii qmail-send # supervise: fatal: unable to acquire qmail-send/supervise/lock: temporary failure
supervise: fatal: unable to acquire qmail-send/supervise/lock: temporary failure


This error just keeps repeating itself over and over again. If I delete the lock file and then touch it, the error goes away but comes back after a few seconds...

Any help would be appreciated!

Has anyone tried to upgrade vpopmail from 5.2.2 to 5.4? I am asking because the vchkpw command is supposed to support cram-md5 for passwords. Is there any configuration issues etc with it?

The solution to your problem is posted somewhere in this thread. I had the same problem, but after reading this thread I found a way to fix it. I don't remember what it was.

Hi,

Currently I run Postfix as MTA.
I quite happy with postfix at the moment, i read a lot about other MTA's as well. I even did a research on mta's during college. But ontopic, i want to know if an 'emerge -C postfix' is enough to delete postfix. I run postfix with IMAP-ssl, spamassassin etc... I followed the howto on this forum.

Thanks...!!!

I'm having a major problem with this setup, Ive setup everything just fine, I can login via pop3 or imap over ssl, I can send emails via SMTP, but when I try to send a mail to a virtual domain vdelivermail just hangs on the messages in queue and uses 100% CPU. Almost like it doesnt know where to deliver it, where does vdelivermail send mail for virtual domains? Like /home/username/.users/username/ or what? Also where does vdelivermail hide its logs at?

Alright I managed to get vdelivermail to stop hanging and using 100% CPU, the entries in virtualdoamins was wrong, however it doesnt look like the mail is actually getting delivered, its not showing up in /var/vpopmail/domains/domain.com/user/.maildir/ .... Man I am so lost =/ Anyone have any idea?

I also had problem with mail not beeing delivered - I could see it pass trough qmailscanner, but them no more sign of it. This occured after the system had been working for several weeks.
Figured it would be faster to reinstall everything than debug.

This is on fresh install of qmail so I doubt that reinsalling/configuring will do anything ... it appears that they are sending a bounceback message that says "that mailox does not exist at this domain" ....

Check that all files in /var/qmail/control that are supposed to include your domainname acctually does so.
Or you may use vdeldomain vadddomain to recreate the virtual domain.
It may also be some kind of permission problem. Try to run the que-fix posted early in this thread.

What´s going wrong here? Any hints would be appreciated :-)


I had this problem also and found that svscan was starting with an rc script AND it was starting in inittab. I removed it from the rc script with

Quote:

rc-update del svscan default



And my problems went away. Good Luck.

I used this guide to install squirrelmail

When I use vpopmail to add a domain or user i get the following error:

Quote:

vmysql: error creating table 'dir_control': MySQL server has gone away
vmysql: sql error[b]: MySQL server has gone away
Failure while attempting to remove_line() the locals file
vmysql: error creating table 'dir_control': MySQL server has gone away
vmysql: error creating table 'dir_control': MySQL server has gone away
vmysql: sql error[b]: MySQL server has gone away
Error. Failed to add domain to assign file
Error: Could not update file


I'm not good with MySQL and everything I've tried doesn't work.

Please help :)

Rooney: when using vpopmail you need to use "user@domain.tld" . This because there is an posibility to have several domains on the same server.
If you skipped installing vpopmail you can use eighter just "user" or "user@domain.tld"

Edit - added:
If you used "mail.domain.tld" when you added the domain (vadddomain) you need to use "user@mail.domain.tld".

Does /var/vpopmail/domains/blalba.ru/am/.maildir exist?

What happens when you add users to the vpopmail system? Any errors?

With spamassassin-3.1.0, I believe this conf.d/spamd is incorrect:
SPAMD_OPTS="-d -u vpopmail -v -x -C /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf"

I believe this is more correct:
SPAMD_OPTS="-u vpopmail -x -v"

because /etc/mail/spamassassin and /usr/share/spamassassin are already coded in the spamassassin scripts.

I have created an e-mail account from qmailadmin where I can login as postmaster.
I can send and receive e-mails worldwide.
When I send the emails to others recipients.
Instead of full name the "Error: unable to setuid" is placed like below.
From: "Error: unable to setuid" <ababali@mydomain.com>
How to solve this issue. I just want that "Error: unable to setuid" to be replaced with my full name.
Other users created before are OK.
Thanks in advance.
