I'm not 100% sure really. I am new to dovecot as well. I am using
the up2date rpm for RHLE3, as I just got this server running and
didn't have a lot of time to run with the latest, so the version I
use is a little older, but from what I understand mail_location uses
the same syntax as default_mail_env. When I tried not defining
INBOX, it didn't work the way I wanted it too. I don't know if the
newer version is better at handling that or not.
