qmail pop not finding my maildir...


Ive set up qmail so that it recieves mail ok, and i can see the mails Ive sent turning up in the correct Maildir.

I then try and telnet <ip> 110

[root@www root]# telnet 192.168.0.3 110
Trying 192.168.0.3...
Connected to 192.168.0.3.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK <1984.1021913553@mail.mydomain/bin/checkpassword>
user test
+OK
pass test
-ERR this user has no $HOME/Maildir
Connection closed by foreign host.


can anyone point me to where i should be looking to resolve this?

Ive followed life with qmail and another well written doc but between the two i think ive cocked it up.

Where are your maildirs, anyway? As far as I can tell from the error message, the POP3 daemon expects them to be in "~/Maildir". If they are somewhere in /var/mail/<username>/Maildir, then you need to configure your POP3 daemon accordingly.

P.S. I am not very experienced with qmail... This is just an educated guess...

the only one i have set up is
/home/popuser/popboxes/<domain.com>/<user>/Maildir/.popmail

this is from following either "Life with Qmail" instructions or http://www.whirlycott.com/phil/pop3.html instructions...
