Hi I just wanted to follow up (seems like very few people who figure out
an issue themselves do):
If anyone else gets this error. Check you vpasswd file for extra \n's
and the end of the file.
I'd think that this would be more a common problem for everyone. Seems
only to have issues with domains with somewhat large amounts of users
(499 in this particular domain's case).
After I deleted the trailing newlines the standard vpopmail commandline,
qmailadmin & vqadmin tools act more sanely.
Good luck and keep up the good work!

I'm having issues with one domain for modifications to the vpasswd
file and qmailadmin file.
Any time I run a vpopmail program on this one domain I'm getting a
It's an unusually large amount of users for one of our domains, and
this problem has happened before
For example here a not-so typical session (vmoduser options removed as
well as domain & email address):
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~# ~vpopmail/bin/vmoduser -v
. (options deleted)
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~# cd ~vpopmail/domains/XXXXXXXX.org/
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/vpopmail/domains/XXXXXXXX.org# wc -l vpasswd
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/vpopmail/domains/XXXXXXXX.org# ~vpopmail/bin/vmoduser
-a [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Are there any utilities that I can run to check the state of the
vpasswd file? It seems that the cdb is being created with no issues
and an 'eyeball look' at the file doesn't have anything outstanding,
but there are 500 lines and as you can imagine the fields start to
Ubuntu Linux Server 7.04
Quad Core Xeon

vpopmail-5.4.21 (not sure why vmoduser version reads 5.4.20)
Thanks for any advice!
