However, I also see that with that patch's default settings it'd be trying to load the Maildir from under /var/mail. I think you need to change two settings in params.h: 1. Undefine MAIL_SPOOL_PATH, such as by replacing this line: #define MAIL_SPOOL_PATH "/var/mail" with: #undef MAIL_SPOOL_PATH 2. Change the mailbox file/directory name by editing this line: #define HOME_MAILBOX_NAME "Mailbox" to be: #define HOME_MAILBOX_NAME "Maildir" Does this help? Alexander
