I installed qmail+vpopmail+courier imap.

Now I’m able to check imap & pop3 mail for virtual users and imap mail for real (/etc/passwd) users but not pop3 for real users.


I change checkpassword  in my /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-pop3d/run script into:


exec /usr/local/bin/softlimit -m 2000000 \

/usr/local/bin/tcpserver -v -R -H -l 0 0 110 /var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup \

dominioprova.it /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d \

Maildir 2>&1


But when I try to check pop3 mail  for real user named “prova1” I can not manage to download it.

This is the message from mail.info log:


Sep  7 11:30:52 pcprova vpopmail[2472]: vchkpw-pop3: vpopmail user not found prova1@:


It seems like it was not able to check user against /etc/passwd… But why? vchckpw should do automatically…

Could it be a uid gid problem? I installed vpopmail as ud/gid 89… and also tried to run the following:


env - PATH="/var/qmail/bin:/usr/local/bin" tcpserver -g 0 -u 0 -H -R 0 pop-3 /v

ar/qmail/bin/qmail-popup dominioprova.it /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /var/qmail/bin/qm

ail-pop3d Maildir &



(If I change back to checkpassword pop3 for real users works again)

Thank you in advance for any help.
