Default retrieving email

I recently followed Falko's great guide for setting up an Ubuntu 9.04 + ISPconfig3 perfect server.

I'm having problems retreiving a test user's email.

I sent mail from an external account/domain. I can see the mail sitting in the user's new folder:

/var/vmail/<my domain>/<username>/new/1244blahblahblah.<servername>.S=7384

Logging in to squirrelmail as:
user@domain.com gives the error:
<<
ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.
Query: CAPABILITY
>>

Setting up Thunderbird to use IMAP seems to sit in a never ending loop of:
connected to <server>
checking...
sending login information...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

No completely empy. And like I said... email arrives to the designated user in his vmail account in /var/vmail/domain/user/new folder and I can read it on the server by using cat or vi or whatever. But I can't use any kind of client to connect to retrieve it. It's like the connection request is dropped instantly.

which is pretty much how squirrelmail reports it:
ERROR:
ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.
Query: CAPABILITY

If all else fails, I can do a reinstall. and possibly use 8.04LTS instead.
