All this past week, I have been trying to get dovecot
to work properly.
For some reason, it now wants to use the users home directory, instead
of ~/mail. Dovecot.conf has the line mail_location = mbox:/mail. I
have also tried with mail_location =
mbox:/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u:LAYOUT=fs. Despite this, the home
directory continues to be used, with all the files and directories
(including hidden) appearing in the email client. Why is this happening
now? I have set up dovecot several times in the past and never had this
happen. Is this someone's idea of a "feature"? How many more hours
must I waste trying to get this to work properly???
I think you forgot the "~" in front of mail. Should be:
mail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u
I don't know about the "LAYOUT" tag.
