Default Mildir Support

I am migrating a cPanel server to ISPManager, and am using imapsync to move mailboxes. This tools has worked in the past, but when migrating to Dovecot/ISPManager it throws the error "Mailbox doesn't allow inferior mailboxes". This seems to be a limitation of mbox format. I can certainly hack the dovecot.conf file to use Maildir, but does ISPManager need to be aware? I don't want to break the ties between Dovecot and ISPManager with unsupported config files changes. This http://ispsystem.com/docs/isp-pro-en...el.config.html page indicates there is mbox support, but the manual doesn't make reference anywhere else.

Is anyone running ISPManager with Maildir boxes?

you may using only maildir or mailbox. just add MailDir option into ispmanager' config file.

Where can I find an example of this? The current config file makes to mention of mbox or maildir.

Option MailDir changes ISPmanager for record in dovecot.conf for new mailboxes line like this:

user@exmple.com:$2a$04$Ei:1001:1002:...m/user/.maildir

You need to configure manually your MTA for store email's in this path in maildir format, for example, changes for Exim MTA http://forum.ispsystem.com/ru/showthread.php?t=4200

Ok, that worked once I removed a user and re-added them. Where does Dovecot find this configuration? My /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf had mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir added to it, but was not working.

/etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
Code:
mail_location = maildir:%h/.maildir
