"mailtest", the new user, is in group mail(8). In addition, I've added
write permission for "others" to /var/mail. Now, I'm trying to send a
message to "mailtest" from another, working, e-mail account and nothing
happens. This time, "doveadm log errors" is empty.
In short, I don't get any error but no mail either.
Two things to check:
# What does dovecot think user "mailtest" has?
doveadm user mailtest
# The sticky bit should be set on /var/mail (you didn't mention
# setting it. It probably doesn't have bearing on this problem,
# but it will make it a little more secure.
chmod 1777 /var/mail
Since "doveadm log errors" returns an empty result, where should I look
for the problem?
I usually don't use this command, I look at the log file which seems
to have more details. Try looking there for more diagnostics. Also,
look at your MTA's logs as well.
