I have been trying to get exim to deliver mail in Maildir format in order to use courier-imap (on a Debian unstable dist.). I found a great Howto at:


After following this instruction row by row I still can't get it to work. I don't seem to get exim to use Maildir format, all mail is delivered to /var/mail/user.

I have changed the local delivery part in exim.conf to:

driver = appendfile
group = mail
mode = 0660
mode_fail_narrower = false
envelope_to_add = true
return_path_add = true

directory = ${home}/Maildir
maildir_format = true
prefix = "

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
