    Hi,

    I have a strange problem when trying to create an email address for one domain.

    When creating and email for any other domain it creates it as normal no problem but on this one domain I recieve the error
    Code:
    The e-mail account paul@inbharat.com with the login Permission denied: /home/bharat/etc/inbharat.com/passwd passwd  and password <password> with a quota of 10 Megabytes was successfully created. 
    The permissions for this file are 777, yes I know bad but I wanted to rule that out.

    Any ideas on what is going wrong?

    Paul

    Try to check the permissions of the directories that contain the password file:

    /home/bharat/etc/inbharat.com/
    /home/bharat/etc/

    They should be 644 and username:mail

    Where username will of course be bharat

    If you open a ticket I will be more than glad to take a look at it.
