I think what you're interested in is available through the virtual mailbox as explained in the courier manual.

did you create Maildir using:

maildirmake command?

the syntax is:

maildirmake /home/me/Maildir

This will create the Maildir folder and the associated sub-folders. Thus mails will be delivered for the me to Maildir.


I think you misunderstood me. With "folders" I mean mail folders, not directories (of the filesystem).

Consider the following example. I create a maildir with

maildirmake ~/Maildir.

After this is done, I create a subfolder ABC by entering

maildirmake -f ABC ~/Maildir.

Now how can I tell Courier to deliver mail to the subfolder ABC?

The background of this whole thing is that I want to have IMAP folders like Inbox, Sent and Trash which reside on the same hierarchy level. If I just let Courier direct mail to ~/Maildir and access ~/Maildir with my e-mail client (KMail) via IMAP, I have a top level folder Inbox and all other folders I create are located below Inbox. This is, of course, nonsensical.
