You are correct, I typoed when typing the email, not the actual command. To verify, I have ensure that there is nothing owned by UID 1004 or GID 1004 on the entire system. > If qmail-smtpd can't run vhckpw, it can't authenticate.

I temporarily changed qmaild's shell to /bin/bash, su - qmaild'd, and successfully executed vchkpw: $ vchkpw vchkpw-pop3: vchkpw is only for talking with qmail-popup and qmail-pop3d. It is not for runnning on the command line. > What is the ownership of the files/directories in /home/vpopmail? # ls -l /var/vpopmail/ (~vpopmail == /var/vpopmail on gentoo) drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 784 Nov 25 07:18 bin/ lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 Nov 25 07:18 doc -> /usr/share/doc/vpopmail-5.4.6-r1/ drwxr-xr-x 5 vpopmail vpopmail 352 Nov 25 14:44 domains/ drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 184 Nov 23 07:34 etc/ drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 200 Nov 25 07:18 include/ drwxr-xr-x 2 vpopmail vpopmail 80 Nov 25 07:18 lib/ And before you ask, vpopmail is the normal name for the group on the gentoo install, as opposed to the more traditional vchkpw. I'm 90% sure that permissions and ownerships aren't the problem here, because all I did was a specific chown which I reversed exactly. I have a feeling that there's a UID tucked away in a file someplace. How can we enable debug logging for vchkpw or something to give an insight? Cheers, -- Casey Allen Shobe [EMAIL PROTECTED]
