Question Fedora Core 5 Perfect Setup - Postfix problem

I started with my first Linux server with RedHat 9.0. I have Fedora 1.0, 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0 and now I am trying to create my first mail server. I followed the C5 Perfect Setup. I deviated a couple of times and ran into problems so I wiped the disk and this time I followed to the letter. (I think.)

However, I can not get the mail server to accept the mail and deliver it to the users. I am not planning to install ISPConfig so I followed the steps below. and it doesn't work.

If you do not want to install ISPConfig, then you must configure Postfix to deliver emails to a user's Maildir:

postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
postconf -e 'mailbox_command ='
/etc/init.d/postfix restart

I checked the directories for the users and there is no Maildir in the users directories.

I even tried the following to create a directory to no avail.

echo "hello" | mail root
echo "hello" | mail terry

Nothing!

The rest of the installation was great! Thanks for your efforts!

Here is tha main.cf
