dot qmail file with command - running as popuser can't write to user directories

    Hi All,

    I have an obscure but vexing problem.

    Plesk has the dot qmail files running as 'popuser' (instead of a normal user), so that when I create a dot qmail file with a command to run a script in a user directory, the script also runs as popuser, and then the script can't write to the user directory.

    When I used qmail on a standard Linux box (not Plesk), the dot qmail files were in the user's home dir, and they ran as the user; thus the script could write to the user's dir.

    Does anyone have a workaround?

    If not, this effectively bars Plesk/Qmail from using the dot command method.
