maildir:add (msg) will place the E-Mail (type(msg) == "string") in the new folder of Maildir. When the Maildir folder does not exists, it will create {tmp, cur, new} folder of the Maildir structure. When adding the msg was successfull, the return value is true, otherwise it’s false.

In general, the msg should follow the rfc2822 (lua-maildir won’t verify it!). Otherwise your Mail-Clients, you or both will get in trouble.
