Default postfix can't find user

I followed the guide here: Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (CentOS 6.0 x86_64) and everything seems to be working properly.

I set up an account admin at

I sent a test email using mailx and then attempted to login. Unfortunately, everytime I try to login using either the raw telnet connection or the SquirrelMail web access, I have trouble. Finding that the imap was having trouble changing directory (chdir admin/admin/: No such file or directory) and knowing that the server is supposed to create the directory, I check my /var/log/maillog file. What I see is (with the timestamp and servername removed):

Okay, so I've got something wrong with my database entries (I think). Oh, by the way, the FQDN is - if that's important.

Here are my entries:
mysql> SELECT email, quota FROM users;
| email | quota  |
| admin | 262144 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> SELECT * FROM domains;
| domain       |
| |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
What am I missing? What else do I need to check? Does there happen to be a connection error with a component?

Thank you very much.
