For sure it does _NOT_ match the format qmail-newu expects, else
qmail-newu wouldn't report an error, wouldn't it?
man qmail-newu -> man qmail-users ->
/var/qmail/users/assign is a series of assignments, one per line.
It ends with a line containing a single dot.
You've got the single dot in the last line?
If so: make a backup of 'assign', delete _everything_.
Put only a single dot in the file, followed by '\n'.
If this succeeds (I'd expect it to do) add one line after another to the
now empty 'assign'. One-by-one, everytime pasting the line directly
above the period. After pasting one line and saving 'assign' run
qmail-newu to see if it still works. Continue until you found the line
that disrupts qmail-newu -> you've found the culprit.
