hi. I'm getting the error "-ERR aack, child crashed"
whenever i try to telnet to port 110 and check the
mail for a user created through vpopmail. Below is the
description of the software and configuration i'm



Vpopmail Configuration:

Vpopmail was compiled with the following options:

./configure --enable-ldap=y --enable-roaming-users=y

Startup script for smtp and pop:

/usr/local/bin/tcpserver -x
/home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp.cdb -c 499 -u 515 -g 514 0
smtp /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd
/var/qmail/bin/auth_smtp /usr/bin/true &

/usr/local/bin/tcpserver -H -R -t 2 -c 500 0 110
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup reports.comsatmax.com
/home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d
Maildir 2>/var/log/qmail/poplogs &

The vpopmail setup is working fine to the extent that
i can:
Add users to ldap using vadduser
Add virtual domains to ldap using vadddomain
Delete users and domain etc.

Qmail-LDAP is also working fine as qmail is able to
deliver mail to the added virtual domains.

I experience the mentioned problem when i try to
telnet onto port 110 of my qmail-vpopmail server and
check a user's mailbox.

% telnet localhost 110
Connected to localhost
Escape character is '^]'
pass secret
-ERR aack, child crashed
Connection closed by foreign host

I've checked the rules database as i had found a
mention to the rules database being corrupt as a
possible cause for this. But, the problem still
remains. And what is a bigger problem is that even
after explicitly enabling logging while doing a
'configure' on vpopmail, i don't get anything in the
logs regarding this problem. Please help me out with
