I've done a reinstall (purged everything, starting at page 3) again, this time I've done away with my vmail user and tried to get the recieving emails into /var/vmail/<domain>/<user>. I've noticed that there's no vmail user being created in the tutorial.

For me it results into this:
/etc/var/mail.err
Code:
May 26 20:02:00 catnipika postfix/pipe[17358]: fatal: get_service_attr: unknown username: vmail
/etc/var/mail.warn
Code:
May 26 20:33:41 catnipika postfix/pipe[20953]: fatal: get_service_attr: unknown username: vmail
May 26 20:33:44 catnipika postfix/qmgr[624]: warning: private/maildrop socket: malformed response
May 26 20:33:44 catnipika postfix/qmgr[624]: warning: transport maildrop failure -- see a previous warning/fatal/panic logfile record for$
May 26 20:33:44 catnipika postfix/master[3669]: warning: process /usr/lib/postfix/pipe pid 20953 exit status 1
May 26 20:33:44 catnipika postfix/master[3669]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/pipe: bad command startup -- throttling
Surely, there must be a reason why no vmail system user is being created in the tutorial.
