    Here is the scenario:

    Can email out from email address
    Can log into both smtp and pop3 through email client without error (Outlook Express)
    Can create new email and send it successfully
    Can send email TO the email address with no bounce-back
    Have 'Maildir' box checked in ISPConfig

    Where is my email and why can't I see it?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Even more perplexing...

    If I set up a forward to an outside address, it will forward, but still is not available from the actual POP3 server. Yes, I have Maildir checked. :)

    What's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    ?
    Which distribution do you use?

    and one more oddity

    the email DOES appear in my /Maildir folder.

    ...if I click the "Keep Copy" option

    You're using a POP3/IMAP daemon that uses mbox, not Maildir, so you must disable Maildir under Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email.

    And of course, you only get a copy if you enable "Keep copy".
