Default Virtual Users & Domains With Postfix, [...] SquirrelMail Conn. dropped by IMAP ubuntu

Just finished going through the Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 12.10) post and again I'm amazed at the thoroughness of your guides. Thank you for all that you do!

However I'm getting stuck so close to the end, and I'm not sure what could be causing the error.

I've gotten to the end where I'm trying to login as the test user created to squirrelmail but am getting the error "ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.

Here is the results from a netstat -tap:
root@mail1:/var/log# netstat -tap

I've made sure to replace the mail_user_password in all of the references in the walkthrough (At least I'm pretty sure I did!) and everything seems to be working correctly,

telnet results:
root@mail1:/var/log# telnet localhost 25
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 my.hidden.host ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)
ehlo localhost
250-SIZE 10240000
250 DSN
221 2.0.0 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host.
Anyone have any ideas on where I should start troubleshooting this? imap I'm guessing, but could use some guidance.

Also I have sent each of the test account's I've created a test email using the mailx command as stated in the guide.

Thanks in advance!
