I just migrated my qmail + vpopmail-5.4.10 + qmailadmin-1.2.8 server, and
had a hard drive fail shortly after the migration was complete, and the
recovery process ended up trashing the vpopmail state in ways I'm unable to
I am running FreeBSD 7.0, and am using SMTP-after-POP and the cdb-style
Here are the symptoms:
* I can not add users, either via qmailadmin or vadduser. Vadduser reports:
Failed while attempting to add user to auth backend
Error: no auth connection
* I noticed the owner of open-smtp was root. I think this was not the case
on my old server. If I change it manually to vpopmail it changes back to
root when the next POP occurs. I don't know whether this indicates any
actual problem, since the smtprules and SMTP-after-POP seems to be working
ok, but I thought I'd mention it.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts about this.
