[Dovecot] Configuration Question.

Hi Everyone.

I have recently installed dovecot for the first time on a RHEL3  
server.  I have it working for the most part, but am a bit baffled by  
part of the configuration, something that I am sure I am just doing  

I can successfully access my normal mailbox which is in /var/spool/ 
mail/username, but I also want to create mail folders, and that's the  
problem I am having.  I want the folders to live in


I have tried

default_mail_env = mbox:~/mail/:INBOX=/var/spool/mail/%u


default_mail_env = maildir:~/mail:INBOX=/var/spool/mail/%u

What on earth am I doing wrong?  I'm sure it's something small that I  
just don't understand.
