Default Mail being sent to /home/User/Maildir but its checking /var/spool/mail/User

The mail is being sent to the proper location, /home/User/Maildir/etc..., but I think when I try to check for new messages it is checking /var/spool/mail/User instead of where the mail is being delivered. I have been trying to figure out why, but have been struck at dead ends and finding I am doing the same thing over and over ... I am at a loss as to why it is doing this and as to where to find a solution.

I am useing CentOS 3.X useing the Fedora Core 3 Perfect Setup guide as a reference.

I do not recieve any error messages in the maillog so it must be a configuration error but I just don't know where to fix it.

I guess you installed a pop3 and Imap daemon that is only capable of using mbox files instead of maildir. Install courier pop3 and imap instaed.

You could also install Dovecot. It also uses Maildir.

I have courier installed, at least I think I do. I used the same install lines for the Fedora guide, just replaced apt-get with yum.
Code:
# yum install cyrus-sasl cyrus-sasl-devel cyrus-sasl-gssapi cyrus-sasl-md5 cyrus-sasl-plain postfix imap
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: CentOS-3 - Addons
Server: CentOS-3 - Base
Server: CentOS-3 - Extras
Server: CentOS-3 - Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
cyrus-sasl is installed and is the latest version.
cyrus-sasl-devel is installed and is the latest version.
cyrus-sasl-gssapi is installed and is the latest version.
cyrus-sasl-md5 is installed and is the latest version.
cyrus-sasl-plain is installed and is the latest version.
postfix is installed and is the latest version.
imap is installed and is the latest version.
No actions to take
Could it be that I am just over looking something ?

You've installed the imap package which uses mbox, not Maildir.
