It seems that you _must_ create the UNIX:@ directory from the terminal. If you do it in the Finder it changes the ":" to a "-" as you describe.


If, however, you create it using the terminal and view the Library/Mail directory from there you can see that it does work. When you look at it in the Finder it displays as "UNIX/@".


PS I'm using 10.1.3; and while I can create the directory, Mail.app still won't collect my mail. What did the Finder display pre-10.1.3?
