I've checked on my own install . it's indeed the right permissions


drwxrwx---  9 vpopmail vchkpw   4.0K Feb 21  2012 vpopmail


With the command "ls -lah /home/vpopmail/" you should have


drwx------ 150 vpopmail vchkpw 4.0K Apr 10 16:29 domains


If you have at least one working domain it should be 


ls -lah /home/vpopmail/domains


drwx------   7 vpopmail vchkpw 4.0K Jul 29  2012 thibs.com



Normally the vpopmail user should look like this


grep vpopmail /etc/passwd

vpopmail:x:89:89:Vpopmail (virtual domains)


How do you try to create the domain ? 


By command line you should use


/home/vpopmail/bin/vadddomain test.com username


As it seems you are using my guide, could you please do :


chmod +x /downloads/scripts/qmr_inst_check


and tell me the result

check the directory permissions. ~vpopmail and below must be owned by the
vpopmail user.
