The problem only occurs when running the vpasswd command on one particular domain on the server, so its not a problem with vpasswd.

Now, with that being said, how would I proceed from here to narrow down the problem with that one domain? could it be that its vpasswd.cdb file is corrupt, too large, etc. there are only 1250 accounts on that domain.

I have a ton of vpasswd.bak files in that directory. can i restore one of those? is there any way to run a check on the vpasswd files to see where they are going bad?

Sorry for all the questions....I'm not a vpopmail expert by any stretch and as of right now I can't update passwords on that one domain.

Thanks for any suggestions.

You could try renaming vpasswd.cdb (so you have a backup) and then running vuserinfo [EMAIL PROTECTED] This might be enough to rebuild a possibly corrupt vpasswd.cdb.

If that fails, then you probably have an entry in the vpasswd file that vpopmail doesn't like. I'd look around the entry you posted about earlier (where kdump showed vpasswd failed) first.

And I'd also recommend trying vpopmail 5.4.0. You can configure and make it without installing it, and still try out the vpasswd and other binaries (from the build directory) to see if it helps with your problem.
