trying to setup email server

i nearly got covecot setup but i keep getting this error when i try log in my pop3 server “Error sending password: -ERR Maildir invalid (no ‘cur’ directory)” would you by any chance know what could be causing this?

You don’t have a Maildir with the correct structure. Provided you have set up postfix to deliver to a Maildir and dovecot is looking for it at the same place, it should be automatically created when mail arrives.

so the mailqueue directory on postfix should match the maildir in dovecot?

would my postfix conf and my dovecot conf files being posted be any help?

No, the home_mailbox directive for Postfix. You can see in /var/mail/log where the mail has been delivered to.
