Question how to create new email account?

Hello!
I have suse9.3, postfix. I create new user with home directory /var/spool/mail but I got following error:

Log In Error: Access denied: Your account is temporarily unavailable (+t bit set on home directory).
I have not ISPConfig.

What is an error?

When do you get the error? When logging in with POP3?
Can you post
Code:
ls -l /var/spool/mail<username>
and
Code:
ls -l /homedir/of/<username>
?

Ok, but can you post the output of
Code:
ls -l /var/spool/mail/<username>
and
Code:
ls -l /homedir/of/<username>
here?

Do you use Maildir or mbox? Which POP3 daemon do you use? Did you follow any of the howtos to set up your server? If so, which one?

I am Linux beginner user. I installed Suse9.3 after The Perfect Setup - SUSE 9.3 Version 1.0 guide. Author: Falko Timme <ft@falkotimme.com>.
The thing is that I do not use ISPConfig, Proftpd, Webalizer, netdate and have not Installed Perl Modules.
Via root shell using #telnet localhost 25,#mail from: <xxx@xx.xx> and
#rcpt to: <yyy@yy.yy> really sends the message and the adresee receives it. I do not know, what is Maildir and mbox. That is why I cannot tell what exactly do I use.
As far as I understand the problem is with users mail directory or some alias files locatins - or I just do not know how to create a new user.

If you have followed the Perfect Setup guide for SuSE 9.3 then you have also installed Courier, as described here: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_suse_9.3_p5, right?
Did you also do these steps?
Code:
postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
postconf -e 'mailbox_command ='
/etc/init.d/postfix restart
