mbox and maildir are mail file formats, INBOX is the location of the
mailbox which receives new incoming mail.

You can't mix mbox and maildir currently, so /home/%u/Maildir wouldn't
work. You probably want:
default_mail_env = mbox:/home/%u/mail:INBOX=/var/spool/mail/%u

Log file tells the real reason. Hmm. This gets asked so often that I
think I'll change the error message to "Internal error, see log file".
It's probably anyway because your default_mail_env was broken. If it
still doesn't work, see http://wiki.dovecot.org/moin.cgi/VarMailDotLock
