This is not a problem so much with vpopmail, as a problem with the migration of information. vpopmail takes care of managing qmail's configuration files as well as it's own, and therefore, various things must be modified for a migration.
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 UIDs/GIDs. Last but not least, run /var/qmail/bin/qmail-newu to compile /var/qmail/users/cdb There's a variety of things that can cause problems during a migration. These are the common ones more experienced users of vpopmail will come across. The more basic ones are making sure .qmail-default exists under the domain's directory, and making sure your vpasswd file isnt corrupt, or that the vpasswd.cdb file is not out of date, broken, etc. Ryan White wrote: > > I am having a similar problem.
