thank you for that hint but it does not work. if i add the user "thomas", the path /path-to-vpopmail/domains/thomas/Maildir... is created as i want it. but if i telnet to port 110 and give the username and passwd there is still the same error message "-ERR authorisation failed".
what iÂve already written, if i do the same thing but let the user reside in the path /home/thomas it works ... ------ Sie schrieben: ------ > Hi, > > please re-configure & re-compile vpopmail with options: " > --prefix=/path-to-vpopmail". > > then add your virtual user by command: " /path-to-vpopmail/bin/vadduser username" > > caosir > > -----éäåä----- > åää: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] > åéæé: 2004å1æ5æ 2:13 > æää: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > äé: [vchkpw] prolem with authorisation against /etc/passwd > > hello everybody, > > iÂm wondering if anybody can give me the hint i need to solve my > problem with qmail & vpopmail. > > at the moment iÂm using vpopmail-5.4.0-pre2. > > what i want is use qmail & vpopmail with authorisation against /etc/passwd. > > my problem is that i want the virtual domains to reside in the path > /path-to-vpopmail/domains ... > but if i add a virtual user and then try to get my mails i get the error > "-ERR authorisation failed" > > what does work is if i use the path /home/ instead of /path-to-vpopmail/ > then i can get my emails but that is not where i want my mails to reside in > /home/$USER. > > please correct me if iÂm wrong but i think this is an vpopmail vchkpw issue. > > can someone help me please? > > thanks and kind regards > > thomas h. > > >
