Postfix IMAP doesn't support folders?

I have a basic installation of dovecot done with apt via repositories. Send and receive works fine, and it even receives for both domains (there are two) properly; however, it doesn't let me make folders. (By receive, I mean Postfix is my MTA, but Dovecot can read the inbound messages).

How do I configure dovcot to allow folder creation?

Change the mail box format from mbox to maildir and restart dovecot

change /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf line mail_location
# for mbox:
# mail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u
# for maildir:
mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir
