The Maildir will be created py postfix when the first email is send to the account. So send an email first and then try to fetch it.

Did you follow this tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_postfix_mysql_quota_courier to the letter? Because it doesn't even mention a table policy. I guess you have that table somewhere in your Postfix configuration files...

yeah I did, it was probably a typo in my amavisd.conf but when I used the one in the howto it suddenly worked, so problem solved.
thanx fast for the replies
