Unfortunately, I did a qmailrocks install this time around and it used some
abnormail uid:gid of 1009:1004, respctively.

When you say, "change UID and
GID accordingly"...what do you mean by that?  I have changed the assign
uid:gid to 1009:1004, but that does not seem to work.

I believe that something else other than the assign file is is causing my
original 89:89 files on the 1009:1004 machine to talk back.  I am not aware
of what, but something tells me that I will figure it out before it all is
over.  I really would rather figure out how this works as oppsed to adding
all the accounts by hand.  Not only is this ugly, I am not aware of how my
system is working while I have a perfect chance to learn.
