Default imap client parameter?

All seems working well except thunderbird / outlook can't fetch any mails.

The mails are receive correctly (.../web7/user/web7_xxx/Maildir/new )
but none of the clients are able to see this folder .

I guess the solution is obvious but i can't see it

thx

i just found that:

incoming mail are under:
/var/www/web8/user/web8_ablc/Maildir/new
but
all the clients go to:
/var/www/web8/Mail/Maildir/

What's wrong ???

All clients go to: /var/www/web8/Mail/Maildir/ or this particular client. If the Client is the admin of the web, the location is correct.

Are you shure your IMAP / POP3 daemons support Maildir? Try to set Maildelivery in ISPConfig to Mailbox, send a mail to an account and then check in your mailclient if you can fetch the mail from this account.

according your reply, the emails for the admin goes to the good directory Mail/Maildir and the "normal user" goes to the good directory.

I can see all the mail under these directories but no email clients can retrieve them

All Email goes to $HOME/Maildir

Have you tried this?

/var/spool/mail (in most cases)

Yes, and that is caused in most cases by the wrong mbox/maildir setting.

To activate the mbox, go to Management > Server > Settungs in the controlpanel and activate it on the mail tab.

Have you setup your system accordingly to one of the howtos? It seems that mail is not handled at all by the procmail scripts delivered with ispconfig because when mail is unchecked it is impossible to get emails in the maildirs.

yep, I followed the "perfect mandriva" one.

I checked both /var/spool/mail and ~/Maildir and no mail at all !
it seems vanished somewhere else !

But If i checked Maildir, i found the mail in the maildir directory.

I really don't understand why no clients are able to seek them !

Please set maildelivery to mbox, wait 1 minute, then send a mail to an account you created on your server. Then try to fetch the mail with pop3. Post the output from your maillog here. and check also your syslog for errors.
