Question Configuration for postfix and courier

I followed the steps found here:

On Ubuntu Edgy.

I can see SquirrelMail from a browser. When I log in to SquirrelMail my shows a successful login but the browser shows:
ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.

So, I telnet into 143, and try a couple things (username = mark):
a list "Mail" "*"
a OK LIST completed
a list "virtual" "*"
a OK LIST completed
a list "mark" "*"
a OK LIST completed
a create inbox
a NO INBOX already exists!
a list "inbox" "*"
* LIST (\HasNoChildren) "." "INBOX.Sent"
a OK LIST completed
a create INBOX.Trash
a OK "INBOX.Trash" created.
a list "inbox" "*"
* LIST (\HasNoChildren) "." "INBOX.Trash"
* LIST (\HasNoChildren) "." "INBOX.Sent"
a OK LIST completed
a create INBOX.Drafts
a OK "INBOX.Drafts" created.
a subscribe INBOX.Sent
* BYE [ALERT] Fatal error: No such file or directory
Connection closed by foreign host.

If I try subscribe INBOX I get the same answer.

Now... if I go to to browse the mail folder, I get this:
mark@linux800:/var/mail/virtual/mark$ ls -a
. .. .Drafts .Sent .Trash

I created the 'mark' folder in virtual, and assigned virtual as the group and owner.

Now... the HowTo said something about things running chrooted, and this could cause a problem with Debian based distros (Ubuntu is Debian based). Could this be the problem, that Courier can't do what it needs with file/folder access?

I've also tried Evolution to connect, but I'm assuming that if I can't subscribe via telnet, no other client can either. But I did also try Evolution using POP, and that failed.

Please help.
