quota should be not full, as i have made the test i have adjusted the quota of the test domain and the test user very high but the mailsystem still saved the mails in /var/mail/username not in $HOME/Maildir, so i decided to revert the settings back to mbox. Now i have the uw-imap daemon and the popa3d, because with courier installed and mbox enabled users are unable to login to their mail accounts.
BTW - some hint. In 1 of the posts above i have mentioned that the server is moved from another machine - on the old machine mailsystem was mbox. On the new i have set it to Maildir, but EVERY mailaccount of a user that was moved from the old to the new gets the mails in /var/mail/username, BUT newly created users got their mails in $HOME/Maildir, it was not the .procmailrc - i have pasted above an example of the .procmailrc file of an old a user which was setuped to get his mails in $HOME/Maildir but still got them in /var/mail/username
