Run a cat -e /var/qmail/users/assign . If you're not comfortable with showing me (or the list) your assign file, there's not much we can do to help.

For quite a few months I have had a smoothly working qmail-vpopmail-ezmlm-qmailadmin set-up working. The upgrade seemed to have caused no problems. I have just tried to add a new domain and received the following error. (I have changed the domain name to ????? and the password has also been mangled to protect the innocent.) [root@server bin]# ./vadddomain ???????.com 4563?? qmail-newu: fatal: bad format in users/assign Error: Domain does not exist After this error, the domain name exists in /home/vpopmail but the domain folder itself is empty - no postmaster or any other file. When I open the file /var/qmail/users/assign there seems to be a normal entry as below - (snip) +???????.com-:???????.com:399:399:/home/vpopmail/domains/???????.com:-:: There is one line a white space at the top of the file if this is significant. When I try to remove the domain using ./vdeldomain I get Error: Domain does not exist I have tried re-installing vpopmail (5.2.1) but no change. Where should I now look or what should I re-install. Apart from trying to add a domain, everything has been wonderfully trouble free. Many thanks for your help in advance, Rick Phillips
