My server crashed and I had been running QMail, vpopmail, courier-imap, etc for a couple years now. I was able to back up the /home/vpopmail directory, but didn't get to back up anything else.

I have courier-imap running and I got vpopmail installed (at least I think I do). When I do a bin/vuserinfo <user>, I get the following:


bin/vuserinfo <user>
Error. Domain  was not found in the assign file
name:   <user>
passwd: <long password string here>
clear passwd: <real password here>
uid:    1
gid:    0
flags:  0
gecos: <user>
limits: No user limits set.
dir:       /home/vpopmail/users/<user>
quota:     NOQUOTA
usage:     NOQUOTA
last auth: Wed Feb 16 07:44:06 2005
last auth ip: 127.0.0.1

Though the /home/vpopmail/domains directory is there with the domains, it's not seeing the domains and is looking for the assign file. How do I recreate the assigns file? Do I do it manually? How do I recreate the vpasswd file(s) properly so that I can log in and get the mail?

Do I need to go and completely reinstall qmail and all the things with it? I just want to get the old mail out so I can save it. I was using squirrelmail and had subfolders, etc. I would like to be able to get all my mail.... ie. the sent ones and the ones that are in other folders.

Any thoughts, suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
