Fair enough.  I'll delete that user and start again.  About UIDs, though.  The 
user 'groupware' is not a user in the normal sense of the word.  It is a part 
of dimap functionality, in my case handled by dovecot.  There will never be a 
login, unless I have to do it as part of the setup, then switch off logins.  
Is it best to allocate a UID above or below 500?

This may be obvious to you, but its a new ballgame to me :-)
