Sorry, I don't understand the gory details of the 'why' myself beyond
the obvious - when you tell dovecot where the mail_location is, it
expects there to *only* *be* *mail* there.
Expecting dovecot to handle every possible circumstance of other
possible files that someone might decide to dump in there is unreasonable.
Not to mention the possibility of some other software messing with
It simply is a really, really bad idea to use a directory that the user
has direct access to for their mail location.
You don't put postfix's spool directory in home do you?
