Post Maildir folders not created initially by Kmail

I am running a Suse Linux Professional v9.3 server. I completed the setup according to the tutorial "The Perfect Setup Suse 9.3". However, I did not install the ISPConfig as this is my home server and I have a dynamic IP. I use the ddclient that comes with Suse 9.3 so my webserver works fine along with all other internet related features, with one exception. The Kmail setup does not initially create a Maildir folder for a new user, at least not until the user has setup their Kmail account and has actually received incoming mail. Consequently, the IMAP server does not allow a new user to login to the Webmail until the new Maildir folder has been created during the previous step of receiving incoming mail.

Not a big deal, but it took me half a day to figure that one out. Is this normal for the Kmail, IMAP, and Webmail processes? Just checking, its fine as is as long as I inform new users about the procedural steps to follow when setting up ther Mail accounts.

Thanks for any feedback or tickles you send my way...

That's normal. You have to send a mail first, and the Maildir is created when that mail arrives.
