Post postfix - /home/vmail is not created


I'm following this HowTo:
when I try to log in with squirrelmail, I get this ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.

The problem might be, that there are no files or directorys in /home/vmail

Creating domains and mailadresses with Postfixadmin works perfectly fine (checked it with phpmyadmin), but no direcotrys are created.

the logfile, while sending the welcome mail shows me:

Can anyone help?
Thanks, johannes

P.s.: I skipped the part installing and setting up SMTP authentication, but I thinks thats fine...
