    I've been using maildir for a while with no problems, but now this one user is experiencing problems with how his mail accounts work. I think he's been having the problem since conversion, he just hasn't pointed it out yet.

    Mail delivered to and are put into the directories /home/user/mail/ and /home/user/mail/ respectively, when they should be going into /home/user/mail/ and /home/user/mail/

    Delivering to the .spam folder is not only the incorrect behavior, but makes it impossible to retreive the mail without first moving it to the inbox with FTP or SSH.

    Spam Assassin and spambox are both disabled on the account. There are no spam filters setup.

    If I create a new POP account with a different name, for example name3, it works correctly. However, if I delete name1, and create another pop account with the same name, name1, it will stil have the incorrect behavior.

    /var/log/exim_mainlog seems to be normal for the deliveries:
    2005-12-28 01:38:59 1ErUwe-0008De-Uw => user1 <> R=virtual_user T=virtual_userdelivery

    The only workaround I can think of is it symlink new to .spam - not sure if it would work and even if it does, it's not the greatest solution.

    Anyone know why this might be happening? Thanks for any help.
