What the h*** makes you assume you can't download your mails???
I don't doubt you can't, but you haven't shown /ANY/ line of log or
something that shows the error.
All you've shown is lines with successful logins and a LIST that
returned with "no mails".
- are you sure there actually are mails in users mailbox (-dir)?
- are you sure courier-pop3d looks in the right place?
IOW: make sure there's at least a test mail in test-users Maildir. And
than insert a 'strace', 'ktrace' or whatever-trace in your
'courier-pop3' startup, which logs file and directory actions so you
can have a look if
1.) Courier changes to the correct directory.
2.) Courier opens the correct 'Maildir' and 'Maildir/new' directories.
All great discoveries are made by mistake.
