Here are the commands I used to create vmail account: mkdir /home/vmail chmod 770 /home/vmail useradd -r -u 101 -g mail -d /home/vmail -s /sbin/nologin -c "Virtual mailbox" vmail chown vmail:mail /home/vmail Looking around a bit, there are some log files under /var/lib/mysql/postfix, one timed to the add user attempt. It does not display with cat. Some binary format.
