      you have hit the nail on the head. i have switched from
      /home/username/Maildir to /home/username/Mail, and the messages are going
      where they are supposed to go. mutt -f /home/username/Mail (or Maildir from
      before) will show the new messages.

      however, running Pine, or logging into squirrelmail, no messages. where is
      the configuration to change for Maildir for pop3 to see the new directories?
      i'm not seeing it. the setup i'm running is using Courier. should i be
      doing something with that? i'm a little lost. i built this mail config a
      LONG time ago and now i can't remember what i did.
