Sergi... as I see, "/Maildir" is a folder, it has to exist in your path 
or you have to configure Courier to look into another different place, 
which is not the case :-)

I can be wrong because I have not used Courier before, but this can be 
easily tried, just create a new "test" account at:


Restart the daemons, send a message to that account ("To: test@cub3.net"), 
try to login and review the logs.
