Mail Server: Postfix + imapproxy + dovecot + squirrelmail -> Folders problem

Hi everyone,
I have a mail server running Postfix + imapproxy + dovecot + squirrelmail. /home is mounted in /dev/sdb1. And /var/mail is mounted in /dev/sdb2. Dovecot is member of mail group. There are two users in question: brgsousa and gugagomes. These are the permissions:
fazendeiro:~# ls -l /home/ | grep brgsousa
drwxr-sr-x  3 brgsousa             mail    4096 2008-09-06 19:02 brgsousa
fazendeiro:~# ls -l /home/ | grep gugagomes
drwxr-sr-x  4 gugagomes            mail    4096 2008-09-08 15:05 gugagomes
fazendeiro:~# ls -l /home/brgsousa
total 272
-rw-------  1 brgsousa mail    668 2008-09-08 13:51 Enviadas
-rw-------  1 brgsousa mail  68383 2008-09-08 14:30 Itens Enviados
-rw-------  1 brgsousa mail 192300 2008-09-08 14:16 Lixo
-rw-------  1 brgsousa mail    556 2008-09-08 13:48 Rascunhos
fazendeiro:~# ls -l /home/gugagomes/
total 16
drwxrwxrwx  2 gugagomes mail 4096 2008-09-02 12:30 INBOX
-rw-rwx---  1 gugagomes mail  509 2008-07-10 16:34 Itens Enviados
-rw-rwx---  1 gugagomes mail  509 2008-09-05 10:54 Lixo
-rwxrwxr-x  1 gugagomes mail  509 2006-11-28 04:36 Rascunhos
fazendeiro:~# ls -l /var/mail/brgsousa
-rw-------  1 brgsousa mail 1619 2008-09-08 14:30 /var/mail/brgsousa
fazendeiro:~# ls -l /var/mail/gugagomes
-rw-------  1 gugagomes mail 165277 2008-09-08 15:28 /var/mail/gugagomes
Both user quotas are the same.

PROBLEM: Brgsousa user can check out his inbox and all his folders. But gugagomes user can check only his inbox from /var/mail
The error that gugagomes gets is:
ERROR Request:
SELECT "Itens enviados"
Reason: Internal error occurred. Refer to server log for more information

What can be happenning?

So what do the logs tell you?

What does "Itens enviados" mean?
