I can feel brain goop leaking from my nose.
I was following the above guide to get a mail server up and running. The major difference in it all is the fact that my server is running i686, but I compensated for that easily, just a difference in folder/RPM names.
Otherwise I followed it to a "T." Everything seemed to go smoothly, no trips or falls until the very end.
After installing squirrelmail and trying to login on firstname.lastname@example.org
returns ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.
Uncle google tells me to run this command because SELinux is overzealous:
setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect=1
And that works, and I thought I was home free. However, after that, I'm presented with a new error. I forget exactly what it was. However, google told me to send an email to create the mailbox because it wasn't there, yet. So I send a test email on over, but that fails, and so does mailx. So there's a lot goofed up, here.
Next I created /home/vmail/withfrosted.com/admin while logged into the vmail user for proper permissions. Squirrelmail now logs into the mail box but gives me yet another new error, in which I am now stuck on:
ERROR: Could not complete request.
Query: SELECT "INBOX"
Reason Given: Unable to open this mailbox.
As a summary, because I'm all over the place, here:
1. Can't view the mailbox via Squirrelmail.
2. Can't receive email, tried with mailx and a test email from gmail.
Regarding #2, the gmail test email, from the maillog:

(What's really odd? No bounceback email in my gmail inbox! I'm assuming that sprouts from the DSN error returned, here.)
If you all need any more information at all, just please reply and let me know. I would really appreciate any leads. I generally don't like littering forums with useless topics, and I honestly don't mean to. I promise that I looked as hard as I could on this one, literally all night and now I'm at work. >.> Mailservers are my weak spot, they shotgun my brain-power.
