This is not a problem so much with vpopmail, as a problem with the
of information. vpopmail takes care of managing qmail's configuration
as well as it's own, and therefore, various things must be modified for
The most important files you will need to move over:
/var/qmail/controls/* (obviously cant forget these)
/var/qmail/users/assign This file maps ownership to deliveries. The
userIDs and groupIDs must match the vpopmail:vchkpw
Last but not least, run /var/qmail/bin/qmail-newu to compile
There's a variety of things that can cause problems during a migration.
are the common ones more experienced users of vpopmail will come
more basic ones are making sure .qmail-default exists under the domain's
and making sure your vpasswd file isnt corrupt, or that the vpasswd.cdb
is not out of date, broken, etc.
