Thank you very much for your effort to help here... but my problem is still here.

My /etc/postfix/ contains
virtual_mailbox_base = /home/vmail

My database looks like:
root@mailserver:~# mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 103
Server version: 5.0.51a-3ubuntu5.1 (Ubuntu)

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

mysql> USE mail;
Reading table information for completion of table and column names
You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A

Database changed
mysql> SELECT * FROM domains
-> \G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
domain: mydomain.xx
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> SELECT * FROM users
-> \G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
email: lars@mydomain.xx
password: R6RfNRnuy0wDU
quota: 10485760
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> quit

The main problem here seem to be that the mail saves in /var/mail/lars:
lars@udesktop:~$ sudo -s
[sudo] password for lars:
root@udesktop:~# ssh -p 22 lars@
lars@'s password:
Linux mailserver 2.6.24-16-server #1 SMP Thu Apr 10 13:58:00 UTC 2008 i686
