Dovecot installation and configuration on CentOS

This is missing postfix config of mailbox dir, let see what else ?

Recommended is to use the directory format to store email rather than the the older mbox format. The Maildir format is well supported by Dovecot and has some advantages (no locking, allows for easy incremental back-ups and restoring of individual messages.) So you’ll need to assign a directory.

Convention is to store mail in a ~/Maildir directory in a users home directory, but nothing prevents you from using another (hidden) directory.

You configure both the Maildir format as well as it’s location with the postfix home_mailbox setting:
