Thanks, this worked out great. All of the variable are being defined correctly.I ran into this problem before and always figured it was a problem on the handoff between qmail and maildrop. If I remember correctly the $EXT and $HOST are qmail environment variables, someone can correct me if I am wrong. In my case the $EXT variable was not being set. We initially had a clumsy awk command to manually set the line. Once we upgraded Maildrop the problem went away. To test try spitting the values to a log file with something like the following in your maildrop filter: logfile "/usr/local/vpopmail/maildroplog" log "EXT is $EXT" log "HOST is $HOST" log "VHOME is $VHOME"
Of course put the VHOME log line after the line where you set it...
I am currently using maildrop 1.6.3. As far as I know in this configuration, vpopmail doesn't have much to do with these variables other than trying to use them in the VHOME line.
Hope this helps in some way. I never could find any info on this and just worked around until one day it started working after an upgrade.
