Hello all,

I am trying to configure Dovecot and Ingo to get vacation working with
vfs and sieve. I use that configuration in horde 3, and it works well.
Now, into horde 4, i recieve an error like this:

Unable to create VFS directory.

My configuration of file horde4/ingo/config/backends.php is the following:

$__user = $_SESSION['imp']['user'];
$__domain = substr($__user, strpos($__user, '@') + 1);
//echo %u %d
$backends['dovecot'] = array(
    'transport' => 'vfs',
    'hordeauth' => true,
    'params' => array(
        'filename' => '.dovecot.sieve',
        'vfsroot' => '/var/mail/virtual',
        'vfs_path' => '/'.$__domain.'/%u@'.$__domain.'/',
        'vfstype' => 'file'
    'script' => 'sieve',
    'scriptparams' => array(),

I have also tried to change the vfsroot to /tmp/ and the vfs_path to
".", but the result is the same.
So, is not a problem of permissions, or something similar.

Into the horde log i have this:

2012-04-02T15:38:18+02:00 DEBUG: HORDE [ingo] Errore nel attivazione del
script. Il driver ha risposto: Unable to create VFS directory. [pid 8941
on line 27 of
2012-04-02T15:38:18+02:00 DEBUG: HORDE [ingo] SQL  (0,0004s)

What can be the problem?
