Default Unable to connect to IMAP

In my mail log im getting errors such as

Aug 11 21:53:19 server1 imapd-ssl: Connection, ip=[::1]
Aug 11 21:53:19 server1 imapd-ssl: admin@domain.net: chdir(/var/vmail) failed!!

which prevent me from logging onto my imap server, I have messages queued up waiting to come in. The error started after i was tinkering with some auto signup forms to create clients and mailbox domains which i did incorrectly a few times, not sure if that set this off.

Anyone know whats going on?

Also:

Aug 11 22:01:46 server1 imapd: authentication error: No such file or directory
Aug 11 22:02:13 server1 imapd-ssl: authentication error: No such file or directory

and:

I fear I may have royally screwed my system. I don't have a /var/vmail directory, looks like a fresh install is in order.
