Default Issues with Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail after server crash

I'm an absolute newbie to unix so pls be patient ;)
I have been assigned to try and make a Postfix mailsystem work again. What happened is that the server crashed (HDD damaged/replaced) the files were restored from backup. Of course postfix doesn't work anymore.
I tried to follow the documentation the person who set this up initally also followed: http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-us...ebian-lenny-p2 however with not much luck. Every time i had a problem or ecountered an error message I looked up google and got to the next step, up until the point where i can't get answers anymore from google.

The problem now is that I cannot get into SquirrelMail (ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server) with any of the active accounts and the only error message I get from the mail.log is this:

Code:
May 30 23:08:37 srv1 imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Let me know if you need more information or the content of any file and I'll answer as soon as I can as I'm trying to figure this out for 2 days now (the whole weekend) and don't seem to get to the end...

Any help would be much appreciated! Thx a lot in advance!

EDITED: almost forgot something: mailx delivers the message, telnet localhost 25 is answering ok too, can logont to mySQL fine, tables seem to be ok...

EDITED2 (more info): Extract of my /etc/postfix/main.cf (I replaced the real domain names by mydomain.eu, myotherdomain.com, and mythird-domain.com, and the password by Pa55word everywhere below):

Code:
# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version

# line of that file to be used as the name.  The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.
