Hi All,

I've been getting these errors for a while now, but have also had other
things to worry about. Its not that many errors, but I just don't
understand why I'm getting them.

The home directory exists:

$ ls -d /opt/mail/hbmail.com/spamtrap

And there are loads of emails being delivered to the spamtrap user.

Here is a snippet of my daily exim report.

Does anyone have any idea's why I'm seeing these?
