What scheme are you using for authentication - local user accounts, xSQL database, LDAP?
Are you using any other tools like vpopmail?

Thank you for your reply. Trust me when I tell you that Im a total n00b with email servers. So Im just taking it one step at at time trying to keep it as simple as possible.

Currently I only have postfix and courier-imap installed. Im quite sure Im just using local user accounts for authentication, I would like to get into SQL / LDAP later but right now I just want to get things working.

helpful link?

I have found links which show people with similar problems, but they blame the problem to be a misconfiguration with procmail.

Maybe this can help you help me?
