If you are using Kolab's Postfix and SWITCH OFF THE DISTRIBUTION'S MTA,
messages will never be delivered to /var/mail. Apart from that, Kolab's
standard scheme for UIDs is username at domain.tld, so this will never interfere
with your local user accounts!

That won't work. Once again: turn off the MTA that comes with your Linux
distribution. Then, follow the advice Bernhard gave (inspect logfiles) and
don't try to mess with configuration files!
