You should read _really carefully_ the dovecot documentation, i.e.


Especially the mail-storages.txt document explains you what needs to be
set. has the mbox /Mail/$USER the proper permissions? Keep away the
trailing slash from the mbox definition. Maybe you want a maildir
instead of an mbox format? I am too not sure whether dovecot will follow
symbolic links. Start with simple, plain setups! Are you sure about the
namespace setting inside Mozilla? I doubt it is correct what you put in
