This is not the only problem. It turned out that adding CONTROL: to the 
location will not work. I changed this:

location = maildir:/var/mail/public

into this:

location = maildir:/var/mail/public:CONTROL=/home/%u/Maildir/public/control

My mail clients (Thunderbird) cannot download message bodies! There is 
no error in the mail log. The headers are okay. When I removed the 
CONTROL: part, message bodies came back. What is this? Please help.
