Sergi, "chdir Maildir: No such file or directory" message seems to mean
the server is trying to "go" to that directory and is not found, because
it does not exist.
"(...) The last daisy-chained command is imapd, which is the actual IMAP
server, which is started from the logged-in account's home directory. The
sole argument to imapd is the pathname to the default IMAP mailbox, which
is usually ./Maildir. Some authentication modules are capable of
specifying a different filename, by setting the MAILDIR environment
I would start by discarding a problem with a bad folder structure
required by Courier.
