Why can't I get my email?
 
Here is the scenario:

Can email out from email address
Can log into both smtp and pop3 through email client without error (Outlook Express)
Can create new email and send it successfully
Can send email TO the email address with no bounce-back
Have 'Maildir' box checked in ISPConfig

Where is my email and why can't I see it?

Thanks,

Andy

Even more perplexing...
 
If I set up a forward to an outside address, it will forward, but still is not available from the actual POP3 server. Yes, I have Maildir checked. :)

What's the output of
Code:

netstat -tap
?
Which distribution do you use?

...if I click the "Keep Copy" option

You're using a POP3/IMAP daemon that uses mbox, not Maildir, so you must disable Maildir under Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email.

And of course, you only get a copy if you enable "Keep copy".
