Default Verify email setup

I went through the tutorial here on howtoforge for setting up the perfect ubuntu dapper server. I then installed ISPConfig. Everything with ISPConfig seems to be working fine, except for email. I have deployed four sites using ISPConfig and have created email users for each, but I still can't login to my POP3 server using the accounts ISPConfig created.

Where do I need to look to begin troubleshooting?

Are you using the ISPconfig's "User" name as account name in your email client, or the email address?

If it's the email address, change it to the User name (web1_info, or whatever it is on your system for that email address), and try again

I've tried logging in with just the User name, but to no avail. In my email client, it just tells me that the password was rejected. Here's the tail of my /var/log/mail.log file:

Code:
Oct  2 03:57:32 reformationstudios courierpop3login: LOGIN FAILED, ip=[::ffff:69.92.207.127]
Oct  2 03:57:33 reformationstudios courierpop3login: LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:69.92.207.127]
Oct  2 03:57:37 reformationstudios courierpop3login: Connection, ip=[::ffff:69.92.207.127]
Oct  2 03:57:37 reformationstudios courierpop3login: chdir "/var/www/web3/user/web3_jhurt": Permission denied

I tried changing my password for this user to a couple of different things, but still can't seem to get in. Does the permission denied line in the log mean that my password was incorrect, or that the courierpop3login process doesn't have adequate permissions to access the file that stores the passwords?

Also, is the address of my POP3 server just www.mydomain.com, or mydomain.com, or mail.mydomain.com?

Have you enabled the "Maildir" Checkbox in ISPConfig under Management > server > settings?

What is the output of:

ls -la /var/www/web3/user/

That depends on your DNS setup. You can use any domain that points to your server IP.

I did not have the "maildir" checkbox enabled...

Here is the output before enabling that checkbox
Code:
ls -la /var/www/web3/user
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 4 www-data web3 1024 Sep  9 23:08 .
drwxr-xr-x 8 www-data web3 1024 Sep 12 04:10 ..
-r-------- 1 root     root    0 Sep  9 22:55 .no_delete
drwxr-xr-x 3 meekish  web3 1024 Sep  9 22:56 web3_jhurt
drwxr-xr-x 3 meekish  web3 1024 Sep 12 04:10 web3_test
And the output after enabling that checkbox and adding another user "jed.hurt" :

Code:
ls -la /var/www/web3/user
total 5
drwxr-xr-x 5 www-data      web3 1024 Oct  2 16:43 .
drwxr-xr-x 8 www-data      web3 1024 Sep 12 04:10 ..
-r-------- 1 root          root    0 Sep  9 22:55 .no_delete
drwxr-xr-x 4 web3_jed.hurt web3 1024 Oct  2 16:43 web3_jed.hurt
drwxr-xr-x 4 meekish       web3 1024 Oct  2 16:41 web3_jhurt
drwxr-xr-x 3 meekish       web3 1024 Sep 12 04:10 web3_test
And here's the tail of my mail.log file after trying to check the email of the new user I just created:

drwxr-xr-x 3 meekish       web3 1024 Sep 12 04:10 web3_test
Please run
Code:
chown web3_jhurt /var/www/web3/user/web3_jhurt
chown web3_test /var/www/web3/user/web3_test
When you want to log in with your email client to the web3_jhurt account, you're using the usernamr web3_jhurt, right?

What's the output of
Code:
ls -la /var/www/web3/user/web3_jhurt
?
