    Just created a new e-mail adress, and I see that the maildir that is used is Maildir, but on my system I use .maildir instead, is there an easy way of changing this so that .maildir is created instead??

    Maybe a symlink called .maildir to Maildir works?
    What software do you use that relies on .maildir?

    a symlink works fine, but I really don't wanna make that by hand on every account.. I'm using courier which is configured to use .maildir , I could change that but then I'd have to alter all currently existing mailaccounts by hand..
    Wanna find a easy way out here :p

    You can edit the .procmailrc template file: /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/procmailrc.master. If you change the first line to
    Code:
    {MAILDIR_COMMENT}MAILDIR=$HOME/.maildir/
    it should work then.

    You have to update something in the web interface for the user in question before the template is written to the real .procmailrc file. For example you could change the user's quota.
