Tom, I reckon you might be on to something. I did su to mike4, and couldn't even list the ~vpopmail/bin directory, let alone execute vdelivermail - in fact I got "Permission denied"! ....And I fixed it! I changed permissions as follows: ~vpopmail/ - to mode 2755~vpopmail/etc/ - to mode 40755~vpopmail/etc/vpopmail.mysql - to mode 644 It started working straight away! Can you guys validate my changes? I want to make sure I have not opened a security hole. Many thanks,Michael.
