Default Postfix - Courier problem


I've just installed postfix and courier but the problem is that the server can handle email and then put them in

The mails are in a file. All mails in one file of 1user

example. file test@eddy.be contains all the mails of that user

But now my courier is giving me the following error.

Jan 11 23:32:43 eddy pop3d: Connection, ip=[::ffff:]
Jan 11 23:32:43 eddy pop3d: chdir /var/virtual/eddy.be/test: Not a directory
I think he is expecting dirs but I don't have dirs but files.

And what is the "cur" and "new" directory for? I needed to make them to prevent an error.

#DEFAULT_DOMAIN         domain.tld
MYSQL_DATABASE          postfix
MYSQL_GID_FIELD         '1001'
MYSQL_HOME_FIELD        '/var/virtual'
MYSQL_LOGIN_FIELD       username
MYSQL_NAME_FIELD        name
MYSQL_OPT               0
MYSQL_PASSWORD          ***
#MYSQL_PORT             0
# Uncomment below if you want quota support.
MYSQL_SERVER            localhost
# Default FreeBSD Socket
#MYSQL_SOCKET           /var/mysql/mysql.sock

#MYSQL_SOCKET           /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
# Default Debian Sarge Socket
#MYSQL_SOCKET           /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
MYSQL_UID_FIELD         '1001'
MYSQL_USERNAME          **
MYSQL_USER_TABLE        mailbox

The problem is that you're currently using the mbox format, but Courier expects the Maildir format.
