Default Dovecot malformed response

Hello
I had followed the instructions found here: https://library.linode.com/email/pos...tu-10.04-lucid. I have no experience with setting up email so I am having a hard time figuring out what went wrong. I get this in my mail.warn log file

My mail is stuck in the postfix cue and is not forwarded to Dovecot. In my mail.log file I am getting:

I see in other examples the relay should be relay=dovecot but is says none. Also I wanted to know what the user and group are for home/vmail, right now they are set owner vmail and group vmail. I set up the mail from the link and have been over it several times but still get this in my mail.err log:

I really don't have a clue as I have never set up mail before. I have never administered my own site before but I got it up and working
Thanks James
