Hi Rick,
you can see my dovecot.conf here

thanks a lot

Trying to be more specific, if "bob" is the pw_name and ~vpopmail/domains/mydomain/0/bob is the pw_dir, when bob connects via webmail/imap a dir ~vpopmail/domains/mydomain/bob (not in the 0/ subdir) is created and he cannot retrieve his message.

Can you tell me the reason of that 0/ subdir? Is it normal?


Most likely a problem with dovecot as it would be the one creating those directories. How ever we don't know if it's a bug in Dovecot or a problem with your configuration.

I looked through all the change logs of Dovecot 1.2.3 till 1.2.7 and didn't see any mention of a fix.

Could you post your Dovecot config file to a pastie site (like and give us the url so we can take a look ?


The problem is your mail_location. You are forcing it to be in /home/vpopmail/domains/

You want to use

mail_location = maildir:%h/Maildir
