okay, so the problem I was having was that I had renamed the user "email@example.com" to firstname.lastname@example.org
. by turning up the loging on courier-authrc ( I think that was the name) I figured out that the home folder, /home/vmail/example.com/sales needed to be renamed and that solved the problem for that user. there are now other users that I imported into the database that have a directory copied over and I am working out bugs (ERROR: Could not complete request.
Query: CREATE "INBOX.Sent"
Reason Given: Cannot create this folder.)
but I am chugging along.
any tips would be appreciated
