    First of all, all the services are up, working and listening and I can connect to them... i can see all emails in the following dir:

    /home/user/mail/domain.com/info/new

    But something is missing and not moving them to inbox. What could be causing this? Is there some kind of service that takes care of this? :mad:

    Thanks for any help :eek:

    tail -f /var/log/maillog |grep email@address

    /home/user/mail/domain.com/info/new

    That doesn't look right, should it not be save to the inbox in this directory:

    /home/user/mail/domain.com/info

    I think that's the problem... where can I change this configuration to tell it to use that instead of /new?

    You must have fiddled with it at some point because the default path doesn't include /new so whatever you did, undo it :)

    i think we are getting maildir and mbox mixed up. mbob sticks it all in a file called inbox. maildir puts things in folders.

    The cur and new folders are what puzzles me. I have "new" folders showing up under every account, and for some people who have not used their e-mail for a long time the mail is somehow getting delivered in the "new" folder. This only happens on certain accounts who use e-mail very rarely....but it is happening...

    Is the cur folder the "Inbox" as I listed the above directory, I don't see an INBOX folder, and all the data is stored under cur it looks like. Could someone please explain to me how this is supposed to be working????

    To follow up it appears that ALL new mail is being delivered to the new folder, and once its checked it is going to the cur folder.


    Is this supposed to be happening?
