Exclamation ISPConfig Dovecot v1.2.14

Hello!!!
Friends tell me please what is wrong?
I have configured ISP3 with CentOS 5.4
When i login with RoundCube to my mail server i have an error
Log from Dovecot

Sep 11 00:34:14 xhost dovecot: IMAP(avg@xhost.lv): mail_location: Ambiguous mail location setting, don't know what to do with it: /var/vmail/xhost.lv/avg/Maildir (try prefixing it with mbox: or maildir
Sep 11 00:34:14 xhost dovecot: IMAP(avg@xhost.lv): Fatal: Namespace initialization failed

but in my dovecot config file i think its all right
mail_location = maildir: /var/vmail/%d/%n/Maildir

What can be wrong???

Sorry for my english...

Please try
Code:
mail_location = maildir:/var/vmail/%d/%n/Maildir
(no space after maildir: ) instead of
Code:
mail_location = maildir: /var/vmail/%d/%n/Maildir

thanks for the reply
'm sorry the previous post, I accidentally printed with a space.
In fact, in the config Dovecot without space
mail_location = maildir:/var/vmail/%d/%n/Maildir

what else could be the problem?

Dovecot is reading this path from the mysql database, a mail_location should not be nescessary in the dovect file. Try to comment it out and restart dovecot.

Thanks for your reply.
Try the commented out line as you advised, but the result is the same:
dovecot: IMAP(avg@xhost.lv): mail_location: Ambiguous mail location setting, don't know what to do with it: /var/vmail/xhost.lv/avg/Maildir (try prefixing it with mbox: or maildir
dovecot: IMAP(avg@xhost.lv): Fatal: Namespace initialization failed

Thank you all for your advice!

I found what was the problem.
When i install the ISPconfig, ISPconfig has created user "vmail" which is an owner of dir /var/vmail/ with UID and GID
587, but in the panel there was UID and GID 5000 for the user "vmail", i have changed UID and GID for the user "vmail" to 5000 and thats all.
now it works perfectly.

I hope this helps to someone.
