I believe this happens after i accidently did something similar to `rm

Why is POP looking in $HOME/Maildir? ~/Maildir is where emails are
deposited after being fetched from the POP server.
$HOME/Maildir and ~/Maildir are the same directory. The former is usually
more "script friendly"...
Yes, I know. It was easier to type "~" than "$HOME"
The question still stands: why is the POP server looking in ~/Maildir?
I think that is the way that the OP's server admin has the MTA
configured. I know that it is an option in qmail and postfix, as to
where the messages are deposited...
