    I was adding email accounts to my ISPConfig, and sudenly it stops working corectly. At this moment, when I'm addiong or changing any details in mailboxes/mail domains nothing is going on in /var/vmail - no domains and users.

    also, I don't know is that important, but in /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log I have something like:

    /user/share/getmail4/getmailcore/ DeprecationWarning: the sets module is deprecated
    iport sets
    Error: configuration file /etc/getmail/*.conf does not exist
    maildirmake: /var/vmail/ Permission denied
    chown: cannot access '/var/vmail/': No such file or directory

    Do you know what can it be?

    Hello Till,

    No errors in Jobqueue. Everything has status: insert, delete or update, without any errors.

    1) Does the domain contain any special characters?
    2) Please enable spamfilter in the sttings of, click save and then disable it again so that the domain gets updated. Then check a few minutes later if the directory /var/vmail/ got created.
