Mail problems after following Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier
I followed the instructions on "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (CentOS 5.1)" and everything is running but I can't get outlook to sync with the server because of some permission or file creation problem. the smtp server seems to be working as i do smtp.mydomain.com and a test email can be sent through and the login is accepted.
However the pop3 server is not responding. Is pop3.mydomain.com suppose to be the pop server or is it suppose to something else?

i seem to have be able to send a test message

One extra question, how do i stop an account from receiving email but allow it to send email? this is for a user authentication system.
this is the mail log error. apparently there are no directories created for the users
