That's not something as simple as permissions on the server end, is it? You mentioned the INBOX... If you're talking Maildir then that means .../cur/ and not the "INBOX" directory itself of course, though I suspect it needs to exist. I'm trying to remember back when I had something like that happen and found the (unused) "INBOX" does need to exist. Something like that.
