As a workaround, I’ve added:


|/var/qmail/bin/preline /usr/bin/maildrop /etc/mailfilter


Into everyone’s .qmail-default


This delivers mail as if they checked the back “Spam Detection”.

I've never run into that behaviour before. A .qmail in a users directory is not 
required. I would recommend reverting back to your old version and do some 
testing on a development box, virtual machine, or whatever you can test this on.

Perhaps also post more details about your environment, like operating system, 
qmail version, configuration options, if you're building from source or using a 
binary distribution (ie. rpm).

Hope that helps :) Happy New Year

I should also add that I’ve got about 15,000 messages backed up. Yes, I know 
14,982 are SPAM, but there are probably 18 useful ones in there somewhere J

Anyways, headed to bed, I’m starting to drift. Any thoughts would be useful.

Subject: [vchkpw] Upgrade to Vpopmail 5.4.26 and .qmail-default issues

Most of my domains in /var/vpopmail/domains/ have a .qmail-default file that 
looks like this:

| /var/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail '' bounce-no-mailbox

After upgrading from vpopmail 5.4.19 to 5.4.26, any user that was created using 
QmailAdmin 1.2.10 that did NOT have the Spam Detection box checked is not 
receiving their mail. This is because of absence of the .qmail file for the 
user’s folder. I was under the impression that each user not having a .qmail 
file is not bad in itself, as long as a .qmail-default file existed in the 
parent folder for that domain.

Before this upgrade, this was not a problem seeing that a .qmail-default file 
was in place at the root of each domain’s directory under 
/var/vpopmail/domains. However, after the upgrade, these users (that don’t have 
a .qmail file) are having all their messages dropped to their Maildir/tmp 

I have no idea what is causing this. Replacing the .qmail-default with 
something that resembles other user’s .qmail file fixes the problem, however, 
this is not the preferred approach due to some configs being set for 
catchall-delete or bounce or what-have-you.

Totally stuck on New Year’s. Hope yours is better than mine… any ideas here?
