Yes, few times.

I've enabled now mail_debug, and looks like Dovecot doesn't see new index

Jun 11 12:36:16 dovecot: imap(e-mail at domain): Debug: maildir++:
root=/var/vmail/domain/user, index=, control=, inbox=/var/vmail/domain/user

# dovecot -n | grep location
mail_location = maildir:/var/vmail/%d/%u:INDEX=/media/ephemeral0/%u

Currently it's 777 and vmail:mail, which is a user for storing e-mails, but
I tried with dovecot:dovecot which Dovecot daemon is running.

# ls -la /

drwxrwxrwx   3 vmail mail  4096 Apr  8 21:29 media

# ls -la /media

drwxrwsrwx  2 vmail mail 4096 Jun 11 11:41 ephemeral0
