Mail boxes not creating in Maildir

Have found something - any ideas?

I have created 3 mail user accounts, but there are no physical mailboxes created in the MailDir directory in the $HOME/Maildir/ or in /var/mail - but the mail users exist in Virtualmin. That would explain why all of the mail (in and out) is accumulating in the postfix mail queue.

If anyone has some brilliant idea as to what is causing this error - I'd love to hear as I'm in email limbo. Have tried changing MailDir settings, nothing. Could be a permissions problem, but where. This is a fresh install from install.sh.

So is the Maildir directory under each user's home not being created at all?

It should initially appear empty, then get sub-directories and files as mail arrives.

Also, what is logged to the Postfix log /var/log/maillog for these messages?

This is a dupe to another post you've responded to.

I'm also getting this message: BIND DNS server is installed, and the system is configured to use it. A problem was found with your Postfix virtual maps : No map sources were found in the Postfix configuration

.. your system is not ready for use by Virtualmin.

Looks like you have a few Postfix problems there..

Any chance I could login to your system and take a look?

Sure. Other than shoots, the rest is testing. What do you need, an admin login?

Send me your email and I'll send the login info.

There is no support link on the systems page or on the system config page, so I did the YUM install, but got this error:

yum install wbm-virtualmin-support Excluding Packages from CentOS-5 - Addons Finished Excluding Packages from CentOS-5 - Base Finished Excluding Packages from CentOS-5 - Extras Finished Excluding Packages from CentOS-5 - Updates Finished Setting up Install Process No package wbm-virtualmin-support available. Nothing to do
