Subject:[Courier-imap] maildrop loggs error instead of delivering
From:Thomas Schwenski (

I'm using courier with postfix. When using maildrop as delivery agent I get the following error message:

Mar 15 12:36:00 mail postfix/pipe[30933]: E23139BC247: to=<>, relay=maildrop, delay=0.16, delays=0.06/0.04/0/0.06, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: terminate called after throwing an instance of 'char const*' maildrop: signal 0x06 )

Maildrop is configured in /etc/postfix/ with:

maildrop unix - n n - - pipe flags=ODRhu user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop -d ${user}@${nexthop} ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${nexthop}

and in /etc/postfix/ with:

virtual_transport= maildrop

maildrop_destination_recipient_limit= 1

The maildir of the recipient has 770 rights, vmail is member of the owners group.

Where's the failure?
