    Your Dovecot is trying to make index files. Index files are also 
used by pop3 for better performance.

    And your mail_location configuration seems incorrect. The path after 
"mbox:" is where to create imap mailboxes and Dovecot's index files. 
Proper position for "/var/spool/mail/%u" is after "INBOX=" keyword.

    For further information, read this.
