Can't get emails in my mailboxes

Posted April 18, 2014 5.4k views
Hello, I have Ubuntu 12.04 server in digital ocean with WebMin installed. I was following this tutorial how to add emails and stuff to my server: I had several problems regarding sendmail and mail configuration but managed to set mapping and all the other stuff. Email sending and everything looks to work, but after that when I visit Read user Mail no emails are in any of inboxes I've sent. Before i was getting failed delivery notices, but now it get's sent, but it doesn't reach my box in webmin to be aviable. I can send emails and they are delivered, but they are not mapped into right inbox. What could be the problem in there?

How are you accessing the users' inboxes? Squirrel mail?
Via webMin read user email module.
Look in your postfix config and ensure that the mailbox_command is included.

mailbox_command = /usr/bin/procmail-wrapper -o -a $DOMAIN -d $LOGNAME

Otherwise the email is going to be going to /var/mail which would explain why you are not seeing it in the users's inboxes.
I get such message: The program 'postfix' is currently not installed.

I was uninstalling postfix cause I was thinking it was causing some confict for sendmail cause it was default for my initial webmin instalation, should I install it? Also my read users email for actual user says that it's directory is /var/spool/mail/username

But actualy in spool folder there's link file to /var/mail and there's no actual users folders inside. Only file without type called root.
