Where is the configuration, can u guide me one by one please.



You probably use the standard mailbox format which stores all mail in
one big file per user in a spool directory.
Maildir is a different way to store mail, where all users have a
directory(usually located in their /home/username dir) and every mail is
stored in its own file in this dir.
Sqwebmail can't find this maildir since you're using the mailbox format.
If you have installed courier imap + pop you have to run:
maildirmake Maildir
in every users home directory as that user(or chown it later).
You also probably need to set up you smtp to deliver to maildirs.

I am using postfix, how to setup the smtp to deliver to maildir ?

Sory i am a beginner for this.


If you don't want to mess with changing users mailboxes, better install uw-imap and cucipop, as these will play along with mailbox format, you could install IMP as a web front-end as well.
