qmail - problems sending to new users


I've been looking all over the net for an answer to this but so far I haven't been able to find out much.
I've set up qmail on Debian and everything is running well for me the initial local user.
I've added new users with adduser, did maildirmake, the .qmail file. The new user can send mail fine themselves. The problem is that they dont' receive.
The message in the logs is 'Unable to open ./Maildir:_is_a_directory._(#4.2.1)
Any help is greatly appreciated.

problem solved

the .qmail file contained './Maildir' without the trailing '/'
in fact I could have done without the .qmail file altogether... live and learn.
all ok now
