POP server error

When i enter Usermin, i get this:
An error occurred listing mail in this folder : Failed to login to POP3 server : Internal error occurred. Refer to server log for more information

This is in /var/log/mail.err

Jan 14 11:30:02 ******** dovecot: IMAP(kone.*****): mkdir(/var/lib/dovecot/control/kone.****/.INBOX) failed: Permission denied

And mails dont pass. Any advice how to fix this?


Okay, i changed this:

mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir:INDEX=/var/lib/dovecot/index/%u:CONTROL=/var/lib/dovecot/control/%u

to this:

mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir

And error is gone.

But mailbox isnt working still, i get this when i send mail to it:

  • These recipients of your message have been processed by the mail server:
    kone@***.net; Failed; 5.1.3 (bad destination mailbox address syntax)

    Remote MTA mail.joker.com: SMTP diagnostic: 553 Unknown recipient.

Hrm, what do the mail logs show in that case?

And is kone@***.net an addres you host on your server, or is that hosted by someone else?
