I have a vpopmail server that's been running fine for over a year.
Now, it's refusing to authenticate people;
[EMAIL PROTECTED] tmp]# telnet localhost 110
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
user [EMAIL PROTECTED]
-ERR this user has no $HOME/Maildir
Connection closed by foreign host.
[EMAIL PROTECTED] tmp]# grep john /var/vpopmail/domains/hosting365.ie/vpasswd
[EMAIL PROTECTED] tmp]# ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 vpopmail vchkpw 4 Aug 20 09:59 lastauth
drwx------ 14 vpopmail vchkpw 4096 Aug 20 10:16 Maildir
Any ideas why this could happen ? Is there docs on running vchkpw so I
could see how it works ? Yes, the code does have bits & pieces like;
printf("vchkpw: what the hell are you doing running vchkpw on the
command line!! It's only for talking with qmail-popup and
But I'm out of ideas as to what could have gone wrong. Curiously,
courier-imap, is authenticating the same users fine.
