You can use the maildirmake from qmail ... OR

mkdir -p /home/usename/Maildir/{cur,new,tmp} for existing users; perhaps use a for script if you have a lot of users.


mkdir -p /etc/skel/Maildir/{cur,new,tmp} this will create the Maildir in the home directories when you create new users.

The mail system
I suggest examining /var/log/mail.log and /var/log/mail.err the will be info what caused the problem. There could also be a problem with config files from postfix and/or courier (if you're using it). I think you should provide more details not just short general mail delivery message...

along with checking the logs as already suggested, I wonder how you ended up creating the maildirs. If you did the following for your users
Code:
mkdir -p /home/usename/Maildir/{cur,new,tmp}
you will also need to make the sure the ownership is correct. Eg.
Code:
chown username.username /home/usename/Maildir/{,cur,new,tmp}
and should also make sure they are only readable/writable by the owner
Code:
chmod 0700 /home/usename/Maildir/{,cur,new,tmp}
HTH,

Evo2.
