    I have a question to do with the email configuration, in the perfect setup documentation it says the following.

    If you do not want to use ISPConfig, configure Postfix to deliver emails to a user's Maildir*:
    postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
    postconf -e 'mailbox_command ='
    /etc/init.d/postfix restart

    *Please note: You do not have to do this if you intend to use ISPConfig on your system as ISPConfig does the necessary configuration using procmail recipes. But please go sure to enable Maildir under Management -> Server -> Settings -> EMail in the ISPConfig web interface."

    The thing is ISP config needs to co-exist with a normal user system for me so I am a little confused as what to do here.

    I can get courier-Imap to work with the first steps with no problems..however I can't get it to work with ISPConfigs Maildir handling if I use these settings..

    I'm at a bit of a loss as if theres are way round this so I can keep both systems on I need a IMAP and POP3 system that works well and securely but I also want to provide email to my web users who are jailed...

    is there a way around this so ISPConfig doesn't need to use the postfix stuff to get it to work? I ask this because if I try to send a mail to a user at the minute it ends up in an mbox...

    Please enable the maildir checkbox in ISPConfig under management > server > settings.
