How to make SUBdirectories in Dovecot...

Link to this post 20 Jun 11



Have you tried with another client as we suggested?

Have you tried creating a subfolder whithin that directory you created?

Maybe Outlook needs a special way of configuring the folders ("/" instead of "."). Check http://wiki.dovecot.org/MailLocation/Maildir

Regards

I have tried with another client, but its the same result.

i cant create a folder because all mail is stored in 1 file... not in folders.
i think the problem is because of that.

But im rather a newbie so i dont know that much of how it works...

Dunno :)

I haven't change anything in the /etc/dovecot.conf
it just worked... :)

Im using fetchmail to fetch the mail and it stores the mail in /var/spool/mail/"username"

EDIT: mail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/spool/mail/%u <- that's the conf im using...
