Default Maildir and courier imap confusion


I have postfix deliver mail to courier imap in maildir format.

I can login to courier imap imapd-ssl: LOGIN, user=henry@test3.dk, ip=[::ffff:], protocol=IMAP

but the mac imap client report not able to open mailbox ..

The test account in userdb

henry@test3.dk systempw=uPM1c0qBJSFLM|uid=5000|home=/var/mail/vmail/test3.dk/henry|gid=5000

the path

ls /var/mail/vmail/test3.dk/henry/

cur new tmp

I see that the rest of the internet uses a Maildir pathname .. what is that, and what purpose does it have?
