It can't access the maildir. Off the top of my head, check at least:

* Is the entry in the .mail file correct? Don't forget the extra dot if you 
have opted for a name beginning with a dot - it's easy to type "./Maildir/" 
instead of "./.Maildir/" by accident.

* Does the maildir itself have the correct permissions? When creating maildirs 
with maildirmake, make sure to run it as the user who is to own the mailbox 
(and not as root for example). qmail delivers mail as the user who owns the 
mailbox, so it has to be able to access it. *AND*, permissions may not be too 
wide wither, or qmail will refuse to deliver mail for security reasons (this 
is true for at least the .qmail files; not sure about the maildir).
