Postfix and Dovecot
I have Postfix and Dovecot installed and working on Fedora Core 1 for SMTP and POP3. However, I want to start working with IMAP, but due to the lack of a development box I need POP3 to operate until my users can be notified/trained on the new system. By setting the following in dovecot.conf:


default_mail_env = mbox:/home/%u/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u
I can continue to use POP3 and IMAP, but IMAP folders can not contain child folders. I know I need to switch to Maildir to support this, but I seem to loose POP3 support when I do. Postfix still appears to deliver to /var/mail/user but POP3 and IMAP requests pull from the /home/user/mail/.INBOX thus resulting in no new messages.

I have tried to setup Postfix to deliver to my Maildir, but I have had continuious problems in doing so. Usually, I get a permission denied error in the logs, and I have attempted changing permissions all the way to 777 with no different result. I think I may be having a issue with what to put in the mailbox_command line in my file. I have tried a wide variety including: postfix/postdrop, postfix/maildrop, dovecot, etc. But I have been unable to find any clear cut examples on how to setup Postfix to deliver to Maildirs on Dovecot.

Can anyone PLEASE help me?

Thanks a lot for the help!
