Hmmmmmmmmm!
Hi Keith -

Probably should keep the same thread going - I almost missed your reply on this - plus people use the archives to help solve issues :)

I still think it's a permissions issue, but we can check a few other things as well. What's the output of this command?

$ps -aux | grep -i 'qmail-lspawn'

On my system, this is what I get:

nostromo:[~] >> ps -aux | grep -i 'qmail-lspawn'
root 164 0.0 0.2 892 196 con- I 6Dec02 0:01.20 qmail-lspawn ./Maildir/

Notice the preceding . and the trailing / on the Maildir - do you see the same thing? If not, check your rc file in /var/qmail - it should have your delivery method (or, if your directions call for it, it may be in a file called defaultdelivery in the /var/qmail/controls directory).

I know that Matt has made the install "simple" by making allot of perl scripts - so check in both places. It's common to miss the last / or the . in the command.
