If you want to deliver to Maildirs in users' home directories, you need
to change /var/qmail/rc to look something like this:
exec env - PATH="/var/qmail/bin:$PATH" \
qmail-start '|dot-forward .forward
Remember, the Maildir must be owned by the user it belongs to. If you
create maildirs as root, then you will have to use the chown command in
order to change the ownership. You should include a Maildir in
/etc/skel, so that the Maildir will be automatically created whenever
you make a new user. To learn more about Maildirs, read INSTALL.maildir
in the source files.
