Ok I know that the Maildir hierarchical structure works because I saw it intermittantly in my setup. At times I could look at ALL folders in my client.
mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir:LAYOUT=fs
this says 1.1 only?
My maildir folder has a collection of maildir folders ie each has cur new tmp folders. As an experiment I took the cur new tmp out of my INBOX folder and put it in the root of Maildir. This worked with dovecot using the inbox only or the standard maildir++ format. Although it would not see the old mail in the folder not sure why.
mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir
This setup also ignores the remainder of folders.
I know the dovecot support of maildir is shakey due to standards compliance but this is crazy ... and unusable.
Does ANYONE have a working maildir setup in the hierarchical layout?
