ERR this user has no $home/maildir
How to set up maildir
I have a couple of mailboxes sucessfully sending mail to each other remotely from Pc's connecting to a Linux mail server
In Linux, I have added a new user [ adduser username ]
I have added a password for the new user [ passwd username]
I can from remote pc send mail from the new username, to an existing user, but I cannot receive mail.
' ERR this user has no $home/maildir' it seems there is no maildir for the new username, and the password will not accept ?
How do I fix this issue and create a mail directory for the new user in Linux ?
Mail is held in /var/spool/mail
doing ls /home I can see the username is created
As a newby I am stumped at this point. Reading on the web I see I perhaps should create cur,new,tmp maildir and change the ownership to the user
Any suggestions on how to get this done?
