Problem!


I've recenly setup up a new mail server.
It's Redhat 6.2...
But it seems that there is a problem. That when I logged as a normal user (Not pop3 user). The system displays the following message directly after logging my login is SomeUser)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
No directory /home/SomeUser!
Logging in with home = "/".
bash: /home/SomeUser/.bash_profile: Permission denied
bash$
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

What this refers to exactly, is this affect the popusers? and how to solve it?

Re: Problem!

Do a echo $HOME when logged on. This will give you the user's home directory.

This directory should be accessible from the user account you logged in with.

Possible causes are:
1/ Directory really doesn't exist.
2/ Directory exists, but no permissions on the directory or the parent directories.
3/ Partition containing the directory is not mounted.

yes check that the directory is there and the user has r/w for it.also check /etc/passwords to see if a valid home directory is even listed

The Most Important thing that I wanna know is:

Does this thing affect the POP users in a way or an other ?

No, I don't think so, while popusers don't login with a shell. They just query their mail file in /var/spool/mail.
