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.

It is Maildir I am using, checked permissions - they're all ok. Yeah
would be cur.... When connecting to this, do I need to put something
like Inbox or INBOX as the mail root folder?

I remember historically one needed to do that, however, with TBird one
doens't need to any more though you still can.....

Now to just get the Deleted Items working!
