Default Suse 11 Postfix odball problem

Running Suse 11 and Postfix I've followed all the instructions in The Perfect Server here at howtoforge and have things running beautifully. TLS is good in mail. I can send mail using that account from a client. I can send mail into that account from outside. However, when I log in from a client, knowing there is mail on the machine because I can see it from the command line, the client reports no new mail on the server. The mail log says that the client did log in and then log out. In main.cf, the mail spool directory is /var/mail (tried /var/spool/mail with no success).

Excerpts from main.cf:
mailbox_command = /usr/bin/procmail -Y $DOMAIN
mailbox_transport =
<could the above be wrong?>
home_mailbox = Maildir/ <this exists>

I don't know where to look to solve this. Ideas?

Tx, Paul Seanze

Default Addendum

I should have said above that "client" means from another machine altogether.

What POP3 daemon are you using? What's the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
?

Default output of netstat -tap

With a couple of things removed to prevent spammers

netstat -tap

Please run
Code:
postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
postconf -e 'mailbox_command ='
/etc/init.d/postfix restart
