mailutils reads ~/Maildir writes to ~/mbox (in Maildir format)
I've searched around for hours now on how to solve this problem. The best answer I've seen so far indicates that maybe mailutils can't do what I want? That user switched to something he called "legacy mailx" ?
I'm very new to ubuntu.
I have ubuuntu 11.10 with:
mailutils/oneiric uptodate 1:2.2+dfsg1-3
I setup the pam.d settings according to this link: http://ashtech.net/~dmarkle/blog/arc...d-Maildir.html
My $MAIL outputs: /home/-user-/Maildir
Dovecot and Postfix both work fine. But if I use "mail" to read the mail it moves the message from ~/Maildir to ~/mbox - mbox in this case is a directory with the same structure as the Maildir directory (not a flat file containing all the emails).
Does that make sense? It's as if mailutils knows that I want to use the Maildir format but somehow has the wrong directory name to write/save read mails - despite knowing where to get the unread mails.
Thanks for reading.
mailutils.rc reads as follows:
