Default Same issue with IMAP

Hey folks, I'm experiencing a similar issue with logging in to Squirrelmail where i get the
ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.

IMAP is running on port 143 so that is not the problem. I suspect the problem may have to do with not having a maildir, but following the Howtoforge guide I sent myself an email using
mailx webmaster@stockwars.org

I've also tried sendmail webmaster@stockwars.org

and I've also tried sending mail from my gmail account to the newly created webmaster@stockwars.org.

I think maybe sendmail isn't working properly, or the server is not receiving these emails that are being sent. I'm very new to setting up e-mail on my own server and know little outside the guide. The only way I deviated from the guide for setting up IMAP/Courier/Squirrelmail on Fedora 17 was where the guide used server1.example.com as its FQDN I used stockwars.org since that is the domain name that points to me server. I'm not sure if I should have prepended server1 to the domain name resulting in server1.stockwars.org or if that makes a difference. Here is a small excerpt of my maillog in /var/log - any other logs you need please ask and I'll be happy to post! Thanks so much in advance!
