Default Postfix / ESMTP / Debian / No such user

Hi all,

thanks for this nice tutorials listed here.
I have a Problem with the Tutorial Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Debian Lenny). I've just done that again for the third time. But this time i failed.

First error was the trivial-rewrite thing to not list domain in both, mydestination and virtual_mailbox_domains. That was easy to handle.
Just deleted the Domain out of the domains db-table.

The second fail and not solved yet is a 'unknown user: addy' problem.
In the DB table users i added an users with email address addy@domain.tld when im trying to login into this account i get error 'chdir domain.tld/addy/: No such file or directory'.
I tried before sending a mail to this account do create maildir.
Also i tried to create it using 'mailmakedir', but under /home/vmail no new directories appear.

I don't know where to begin the search for the problem.

I'll post all informations you need to solve the problem.

Thanks for your help.
