Smile please help a newbie set up mail on isp config

I am a newbie to setting up servers. We have managed to host a number of sites on our server but have not been able to set up the email facilities.

We want to be able to host our clients email providing both web based and pop3 email accounts.

Is there any one who could help walk me through the correct configuration of this?

On the email tab of the isp config facility i have the following settings for an email account:

domain - littlemii.co.uk ( the mx record is pointing to the server correctly)

email mailbox - nick@littlemii.co.uk

when i go to http://webmail.littlemii.co.uk when i try to login it wont recognise the details says ERR

server settings for mail are:

module - postfix_mysql
maildir path - /var/vmail/[domain]/[localpart]
Homedir path - /var/vmail
mailuser UID - 5000
mailuser GID - 5000
mailuser name - vmail
mailuser group - vmail
relayhost - blank
relayhost user - blank
relayhost password - blank
mailbox size limit - 20000
message size limit - 20000

if any one can help i would really appreciate it

many thanks
