One step ahead of you on that one.  I deleted the Postfix user before
installing Vpopmail because it would not allow me those userID's .  Since
PostFix is not installed on my system I figured the User & Group was not
needed.  So I blew it away.

One "gotcha" that I noticed with vpopmail and redhat 8.0 is documented in
the vpopmail section of my guide at

It says :

Hi All,

I am trying to get QMail and Vpopmail installed on my Redhat 8 system.
Right now I am running in to the problem that the mail is
not being received by the end user.  I believe I have everything setup
correctly but nothing drops into the MailDir of the user
that was created through Vpopmail.

I am unsure as to what information you would need to help me with this
problem but ask away because I need to get this up and

Rob G
