Dear Michael,



* create the domain directory (completed)

* create the .qmail-default file (completed)

* add the domain to /var/qmail/users/assign file  (completed)

* add the domain to /var/qmail/control/rcpthosts (or morerctphosts)   (completed)

* add the domain to /var/qmail/control/virtualdomains file   (completed)


* add the domain to the auth system    ?????

* create the postmaster account   (NOT completed)


The problem is definitely at the postmaster creation, checked the files.

If I do  ./vadduser [EMAIL PROTECTED]  password

Everything works great, all files are created…


Also I have a problem at deleting the domain…


ns1# /usr/local/vpopmail/bin/vdeldomain

Failed to delete dir_control for



ns1# /usr/local/vpopmail/bin/vdeldomain

Error: Domain does not exist




I installed 5.3.28 at first with roaming users + cdb + qmail smtp auth patch

Upgraded 5.3.29 with same config

Then again 5.3.29 without roaming users since I have smtp auth… J

Upgraded 5.3.30 with same config



I know it must be some small glitch,

if I install again on a new box it would be ok….



Thank you,


Andras Kende

Subject: [vchkpw] vadddomain doest create postmaster account


I have this problem on a freebsd 5.1 box since upgraded to 5.3.29 and 5.3.30

vadddomain doest create postmaster account, only the directory with a .qmail-default file…


It’s a plain install of vpopmail with cdb and no roaming user…



ns1# ./vadddomain password



That "Hangup" output above is not expected

I would assume it indicates some sort of crash of the vadddomain program

I have opened a bug report on sourceforge so we can try and fix this problem for you [851754]


To find out exactly what part of vadddomain has crashed, I need you to lookup some more information for me.

Here the sequence of steps that vaddomain follows to create a new domain. Can you look through the list until you find the first step which did not successfully complete. Report your findings back to the list. This will help us identify the source of the problem.
