Okay last night I tried to install the Linux Qmail Toast found at I've installed this successfully in the
past, however due to the time of night etc... I'm sure I fat fingered
something. Now I have some interesting problems.

When I type
# ps -efl | grep "service errors" | grep -v grep
I get 0 S root 26722 26624 0 69 0 - 319 152ecc Mar06 ?
00:00:00 readproctitle service errors: ...mail: No such user?id:

So I thought it must be a permissions problem or I didn't create the
user correctly. However looking in /etc/passwd and /etc/group I see
vpopmail there clearly.

# ps-ef | grep tcpserver
gets me vpopmail 25091 12424 0 22:42 ? 00:00:00 /usr/local/bin/tcpserver
-l 0 -R -H -v -u89 -g89 0 110 /var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d Maildir

So I think that means that vpopmail has to be there and able to run programmers. (oh I've also su - into vpopmail etc..) Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong here?

Hi Carl,
Not sure if you meant that you saw vpopmail in /etc/group, but I believe that group should be vchkpw.
user vpopmail
group vchkpw
Check that out.
