On the mail.log, i found that when i try to telnet the server via POP or IMAP i have:

Feb 15 16:49:32 server1 imapd: chdir test.loc/la/: No such file or directory
Feb 15 16:49:48 server1 pop3d: Connection, ip=[::ffff:192.168.0.100]
Feb 15 16:50:03 server1 pop3d: chdir test.loc/la/: No such file or directory

'test.loc' is the domain name, and 'la' is a user that i try to setup mail for : ''la@test.loc"

thanks for your help.

What's in the mail log when you send such a mail?

Did you configure SquirrelMail for courier?

I have the same problem.

I configured Squirrelmail with courier.

I will insert my log files.

This is part of my mail.log file after using "mailx sales@example.com"

Did you create the sales@example.com account in your database? Is example.com in the domains table?

You might have to create an A record for mail.example.com.
