    I've setup my ISPconfig server as per the howto for CentOS 5.1. For some reason I can have mail delivered to root and admispconfig with no probs - but when i send mail to a web site it's removed

    I've looked at my log files and it looks as though it's forwarded to [email protected]ldomain.

    There are no alias setup to forward to this account and I can't seem to find what the issue is. Any help would be appreciated

    Last email sent to mail server (extract from log file)

     postfix/smtpd[15667]: connect from[]
    postfix/smtpd[15667]: 80A2BB218071:[]

    According to the log entries you provided, it looks like the mail was delivered.

    It looks like you sent a message from your Hotmail account, addresses to [email protected]. It appears that the message was then delivered via procmail.

    Are you certain that there is not a message file sitting in <domain top level dir>/user/<prefix>_amorris/Maildir/new/ ?

    (Please forgive me if this reply appears twice. I'm having with my desktop machine this afternoon.)

    Thanks for the quick reply. The user exisits in both ISPConfig and /etc/postfix/virtusretable. However there seems to be no /etc/courier directory as mentioned in your previous post - do remember during install that when I installed courier there were no reported errors.

    There might not be a /etc/courier directory if you aren't using Courier IMAP or Courier POP.

    Is there a user directory under <domain top level dir>/user? Under the user dir, is there a Maildir (assuming you're using Maildir instead of mailbox format), with new and cur subdirectories?

    I had something like that also, mail just seemed to be disappearing ..

    editing the .procmailrc file of the user that receives the initial email helped me find the problem, add this:

    tail -f /tmp/procmail.log

    and then send another mail to that user, to see if procmail does something.
    in my case it was that the mail was tagged as spam, and the setting for spam was discard (spamassassin gave a false positive) :eek:

    note: this line will automaticly be removed if you update the users' properties in the ISPConfig webinterface.
