Guys - I just built a new email server on CENTOS5 running postfix and nothing more. Right now I simply sending internal email messages testing delivery and it works however in my /etc/postfix/main.cf file, I specified how I want the users mailbox directory to be enabled on their server:
# The home_mailbox parameter specifies the optional pathname of a
# mailbox file relative to a user's home directory. The default
# mailbox file is /var/spool/mail/user or /var/mail/user. Specify
#home_mailbox = Mailbox
#home_mailbox = Maildir/
home_mailbox = mailbox/
So when I run the following mutt command to check email on my users account, why does it ask me to create Maildir/ directory?
mutt -f /home/carlos/mailbox/
/home/carlos/Mail does not exist. Create it? ([yes]/no):
When I select no, it then takes me to /home/carlos/mailbox/ and I can see all my internal emails sitting in that directory but why does it want to create a Maildir directory when the main.cf file has the parameter set specifically to use mailbox and not Maildir?
