Hi Timo, hi all,

>> "Mar 15 09:29:26 MailServ local3:err|error dovecot: imap(xxxx): Error: creat(/dovecot.mailbox.log) failed: Permission denied (euid=1985(xxxx) egid=219(yyyy) stat() failed: No such file or directory, euid is not dir owner)

No, HOME directories for those users are correct (from LDAP: "/home/xxx";
physical via softlink to "/srv/mail/xxx").

What time "dovecot.mailbox.log" should be created?
We use
   "mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir:CONTROL=~/Maildir:INDEX=MEMORY"
in "10-mail.conf".

	Mit freundlichen Grüßen
		A. Kossack
