Why are you hung up on this?
That is the default location for Inbox in dovecot and configuring a new
installation of dovecot-2. I had this silly notion that using and
expecting defaults to apply to the default install would enable solving
the problem more quickly. That you seem to call solving the initial
problem a "hang-up" is noted as is the fact that the original poster's
been scared off by the various conflicting opinions on trying to go with
minimal changes to default cases as a 1st-base-stop, then customizing to
your heart's content afterwards.
You don't get it. We are talking about someone's config that doesn't
work. I don't care if you can recreate a new config for them in
not default and in this case, simplification and using defaults would
see to be
a way of getting to a solution sooner rather than later. But I would be
one of the first people agreeing with you that ultimately you can (or
should be able to) configure it about anyway you want!
The shift to putting user's email in ~/Mail or
~/Maildir came about a
long long time ago and that's where maildir mail lived.
In what galaxy? If you still run sendmail, that's where your inbox is.
Sure, all my list email is in ~/mail, but that's put there by my filtering
agent which uses the defaults where possible to allow for more compatibility
with less change -- because I know the more I customize, the more I'm
likely to be screwed by something at the next upgrade.
