Default Courier-maildrop not working as expected


Courier-maildrop isn't working as i was expecting.
On machine #1 i see "delivered via maildrop service" in /var/log/mail.log.
On machine #2 i see "delivered to maildir"

Both machines are feisty.
The software and configs on both machines are identical, only machine #1 did not get the postfix quota patch.

What can i do to make this work?

Thank you!

First i installed a mail enviroment with help from this great tut:

Next i made my own version of:

apt-get install courier-maildrop

nano -w /etc/postfix/master.cf

maildrop  unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe
  flags=DRhu user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop -d ${user}@${nexthop} ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${nexthop} ${sender}

nano -w /etc/postfix/main.cf


/etc/init.d/postfix reload
/etc/init.d/postfix restart
postfix check

nano -w /etc/courier/maildroprc

# /etc/courier/maildroprc
# Derived from
# http://www.howtoforge.com/postfix_mailfilter
# http://www.vanadac.com/~dajhorn/projects/fsavp/maildroprc.txt
# http://www.courier-mta.org/maildrop.html

# Vars


# Autocreate maildir, if not existant

`test -d "/home/vmail/$HOST"`

if ( $RETURNCODE == 1 )
    `mkdir "/home/vmail/$HOST"`

`test -d "/home/vmail/$HOST/$USER"`

if ( $RETURNCODE == 1 )
    `maildirmake "/home/vmail/$HOST/$USER"`
    `chmod -R 0700 "/home/vmail/$HOST"`

# Deliver SPAM to Spamfolder

if ( /^X-Spam-Flag: YES/ )
    # Make sure .Spam folder exists
    `test -d "$DEFAULT/.Spam"`

    if( $RETURNCODE == 1 )
        `maildirmake -f Spam "$DEFAULT/."`
         `echo "INBOX.Spam" >> "$DEFAULT/courierimapsubscribed"`
    to "$DEFAULT/.Spam"
    to "$DEFAULT"

# eof

I don't think the difference is caused by the quota patch...
Are you absolutely sure that both configurations are identical?
