Also, a few times I've had problems with different text editors leaving some trash characters in the script when I'v entered tabs of spaces. That especially was a problem when I used gedit (I run redhat too) hope that helps some good luck regis I'll check the qmailctl script - although I am quite sure it is working well as the PID for pop3d keeps changing. My text editor should be fine as it was vi, and I have checked it and it looks ok. Good advice though. Any other options / suggestions ?? Thanks, Matt.
