While trying to "fix" a samba/cifs mount access problem I "broke" my qmail install.
On my server I changed my UID/GID from 5000/5000 to 1000/100 in order to
match the IDs on my workstation. Viola! Samba now gives me access. I then
use find to locate and change the UID/GID of all the files I own.
In the mean time I notice that qmail won't deliver my email. A long and mostly
sleepless night yields on moderate gains in the error messages. After changing
the /var/qmail/users/access file to have the correct UID/GID and fine-tuning the
permissions on my maildir I'm left with a qmail log that looks like this:
@400000004648790f2c0a5484 starting delivery 907: msg 18515226 to
@400000004648790f2c0a7f7c status: local 1/10 remote 0/20
@400000004648790f2da0e68c delivery 907: deferral:
@400000004648790f2da11954 status: local 0/10 remote 0/20
Unfortunately, the few suggestions I could find talk about permissions and
ownership for the user's home directory and the Maildir. Been there - done
that. It's simply too picky and it won't tell me "why" it has this "temporary
error on maildir delivery". Sigh.
This is the current state of affairs:
Although I've left the UID at 1000 I changed the GID back to 5000 to see if that
made any difference. Apparently it did improve the situation somewhat.
GID 100 = users
GID 5000 = eric
Here is my home and Maildir permissions and ownership:
drwxr-xr-x 10 1000 5000 4096 May 14 05:39 eric
drwxr-xr-x 53 1000 5000 4096 May 14 05:39 eric/Maildir
At this point it's beyond frustration - any advice, hints, questions,
or offers of the load of a sledgehammer are welcome :-)
Your uid/gid must match what you have listed in /var/qmail/users/assign - also, when changing this file don't forget to end the last line with a '.' and then run qmail-newu to regen the cdb. Also, you will probably have to svc -t /service/qmail-send for it to see the changes.
Hope this helps.

Wow. that worked like greased lightning!
qmail_newu was the missing link for me.
