Mail going to wrong place?


Hi,

I want all the emails going into ~/.mailbox as maildir.

For some reason, all emails are going to /var/mail/<user> (mbox)

/etc/login.defs:
Code:
 31 #
 32 # This is a temporary situation: setting these variables will soon
 33 # move to /etc/default/useradd and the variables will then be
 34 # no more supported
 35 MAIL_DIR        .mailbox
 36 #MAIL_FILE      .mail
Did I miss something? Btw, I'm using postfix + dovecot.
/etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
Code:
 210 #mail_location =
 211 mail_location = maildir:~/.mailbox

Oke, my fault.

It's fixed. I didn't have a /etc/procmailrc (and postfix used procmail as mailbox_command)

Code:
DROPPRIVS=yes
PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin
MAILDIR=$HOME/.mailbox/
DEFAULT=$HOME/.mailbox/
LOGFILE=$MAILDIR/procmail.logfile
VERBOSE=on
LOGABSTRACT=all
This fixed it (all the extra settings are just for myself to debug other stuff)
