Hello
I am running 10.04 LTS on a xen VPS and am having errors with my email setup. I followed the instructions here: https://library.linode.com/email/pos...tu-10.04-lucid. My fatal error is unknown user vmail. I get this in the email log:
Code:

vmail is user 5000 and group 5000. So I don't know why it would be unknown. If I set up users they seem to be unknown too. I have never been an administrator before so I am at the mercy of others to find out what I need to know
Thanks for your help
