[Dovecot] New install not working.

        It is.  I was getting a bunch of sync errors in Outlook on the Trash folder.  I eventually got them to stop (I'm actually not sure  how).  I went to bed, and in the morning I had 8 messages in the Inbox.  There were over 1900 messages in the Inbox, however.  I was able to use formail to get Outlook to see the rest of the messages, but it still does not bring up any other folders.  I know it can see them, because I can subscribe to them, but it does not bring them up.  Thunderbird brings them all up just fine.

At first things were looking much better, except that most of my folders, other than the Inbox, were not showing up.  I started changing both the dovecot configuration and the folder structure of my mail files, but now I can't even get the Inbox to populate.  Outlooks says it is there, along with any folders I create new in Outlook, plus the Trash folder, which is the only non-local folder with anything in it.  Try what I might, I can't get my Inbox to populate or any of the existing folders to show up at all.  Here is the current output from dovecot -n:

Set mail_debug=yes and check that the path Dovecot reports is equal to what you expect it to be.
