:Is login_dir setting commented out in the config file? Or are you

:this is a bit strange problem. They shouldn't know anything about each 
:others in that case.

Do any other directories need to be seperated, or just login_dir?  Seems to
be working well for now.

It might be a good thing to do a s/\/var\/dovecot\//$base-dir/g so any
changes to base-dir filter throughout the config file.

The truth of a proposition has nothing to do with its credibility.
And vice versa.
