Hello Dilip, 1.) /I/ /do/ /read/ /the/ /list/. Else I couldn't have replied to your post. So no reason to CC me. Guess why I had set "Reply-To:" and "Mail-Followup-To:"?! On Saturday, November 1, 2003 at 10:42:09 AM you wrote (at least in part):

You don't have read the documentation. You user 'vpopmail' is a local (system) user. If you had read the docs you'd have seen '/var/qmail/users/cdb' is responsible to directing mails to your "virtual users" to system user "vpopmail" 'in a spedified dir' (different for each domain; given in mentioned cdb file). There 'qmail-local' is involved. Read the doc to get an idea how qmail-local works. Read the archive, there should be some mails describing what '.qmail-default' in each domains directory is good for. In short: when 'vdelivermail' is invoked from '.qmail-default' is searches 'vpasswd.cdb' (or database, if set up this way) if the intended recipient is known in destination domain handled by vpopmail system. If so it stores the mail in this particular "virtual user"s maildir. So what question /exactly/ is unanswered? -- Best regards Peter Palmreuther Time Warner: bringing you the finest in cradle-to-grave thought management.
