You’re right, I should give you definitions for namespaces.
Here it is:
inbox = no
list = children
location = maildir:/var/mail/%d/__public__/maildir/:LAYOUT=fs:INDEX=~/indexes/public/
prefix = "#Public/"
separator = /
subscriptions = no
type = public
so, #Public (/var/mail/domainname/__public__) is the “root” of my namespace, “sys” is a folder inside #Public.
Anyway, I’ve solved putting correct permissions in ACLs. One thing: I did not find anywhere informations about the necessity to put an ACL even on “root” of namespace. I’ve added a proper dovecot-acl file in /var/mail/domainname/__public__ and wverything started to work.
Anyway, thanks again for your effort in deciphering my previous post :) and thanks for the great program dovecot is!
