I'm using the exact transport from the wiki  
(http://wiki2.dovecot.org/LDA/Exim) but with the addition of setting  
user and also I have a shadow transport configured. So, yes I do have  
a couple of differences to what is shown in the wiki...

WRT my problem, I will work around it using primary groups or possibly  
abolishing the option for users/domains to use any user other than  
vmail. I don't think its necessary but its how I inherited this  
particular mail setup...

thanks for your input,

cheers Andy.
