At present any new user gets kicked out as soon as they log in, with in a fraction of a second. The session looks like this:

Password: [does not echo to screen]
Welcome to VAX/VMS version V5.5-2 on node COBUCK
Last interactive login on Thursday, 19-OCT-2017 15:14
%Sorry, your default device is unavailable for login, try again later...

EKOBLENTZ logged out at 19-OCT-2017 15:14:38.56

...Brian Schenkenberger A.K.A "VaxMan" discovered that SYSLOGIN.COM was not working correctly. It needs to be re-created.

He fixed that problem and now EKOBLENTZ can log in but cannot send email, here is what happens:

MAIL> mail
To: SMTP%""
.TMP; as output
-RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed
-SYSTEM-F-EXDISKQUOTA, disk quota exceeded

TO FIX - When I created the user I also needed to set up a diskquota for the new user. The following example applies to this system, but hopefully you can apply to your case. The reason I run the "diskquota show" command first is to see what others in the group already have allocated, so I can match with same values. It turns out everyone is getting 1000000 blocks

SYSMAN> diskquota show [100,*]
SYSMAN> exit

NOTE! 1000000 seems like a lot, not sure if this was done correctly by the original admin.
