I've installed qmail manually since 0.91 (I think) without any
(unfixable) problems, under Slackware and Debian.
Can you send the output of qmail-showctl to me or the list? And the
corresponding lines in /var/log/mail.log?
Check the permissions of the user's home directory. It should be
% ls -ld ~
drwxr-xr-x 54 carey carey 5120 Aug 23 17:02 /home/carey
% ls -ld ~alias
drwxr-xr-x 6 alias qmail 1024 Aug 14 20:46 /var/qmail/alias
You could also try the qmail mailing list. They're more likely to
have encountered this before.
