Upon inspection, these files do contain my actual mail. So it's just that mail thinks I have none....

pop3 works, so I guess it's not a big deal.

What POP3 server do you use? What's the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
? You must use a POP3 daemon that uses Maildir.

Any errors in your mail log?

Please make sure that the MX record of your domain points to the correct server. You can check that by running
Code:
dig mx yourdomain.com

Then you have to create a system user and a password:

Code:
useradd -d /home/sample_user -g users sample_user
passwd sample_user
Then run

Code:
postconf -e 'virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable'
postconf -e 'mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names'
/etc/postfix/local-host-names should contain all domains that you want to accept emails for, e.g.:

Code:
localhost
your.server.name
localhost.your.server.name
example.com
yourdomain.com
/etc/postfix/virtusertable looks like this:

Code:
info@yourdomain.com  sample_user
thomas@example.com  sample_user
webmaster@yourdomain.com  sample_user
Emails for info@yourdomain.com, thomas@example.com and webmaster@yourdomain.com will now arrive in the mailbox of sample_user.

Everytime you change /etc/postfix/virtusertable you have to run the following command:

Code:
postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
Now restart Postfix:

Code:
/etc/init.d/postfix restart
and you're done!
Thanks a lot. That also worked for me.
