Default Squirrelmail login failed.

According to the "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft)", I set up the mail server step by step and test ok. Then, I installed the Squirrelmail to provide the webmail for users. The squirrelmail config test seems ok, but none of the virtual email account can login the webmail, always show the "Unknown user or password incorrect." Is there any other configuration needed?

Following is the squirrelmail configtest result:

Default Sorry, found the reason

After change the authentication method to "login" in squirrelmail imap setting, the user can login now. The new error is "Connection dropped by IMAP server.", then, fixed by adding to the Maildir subdirectories tmp, new, cur.
