The maildir type format should have three subdirectories,
new, cur and tmp

cd .maildir
mkdir cur 
mkdir tmp
mkdir new

Or, in FreeBSD at least, there's a command 

maildirmake ~/.maildir   

This will create a directory called ~/.maildir in your home directory.
If you then do ls .maildir you'll see you have teh cur new and tmp
directories in there.

Hope this helps.

slayer dies. 
Joyce: Then that means you... When did you die? You never told me
you died. 
Buffy: It was just for a few minutes.
