    I followed a tutorial on this website. Everything is functional but imapd. Instead of talking I will show u what I mean:
    I have set up 2 dirs in /home/vmail:
    what am I doing wrong?

    You must send an email first to a new account before you can fetch mails. The necessary directories are automatically created when the first email arrives.

    I have not thought of this.. Thanx... I have done it in a different way.
    I have created a subdirectory in the /home/vmail dir with the domain name:
    mkdir /home/vmail/my.domain.tld
    afterwards I used the
    maildirmake /home/vmail/my.domain.tld testuser
    command which seemed to be the same.
    Of course afterwards I had to set the rights:
    chown -R vmail:vmail /home/vmail

    Thanx for the help tough...
