Default Unable to open mailbox

I just finished the initial setup of ISPConfig while following this guide:

I'm having problems with creating a new email domain and sending email. When I sent a telnet email to the new server, I get the following error in the maillog:
temporary failure. Command output: /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to open mailbox.
When I try to setup outlook for the new account, I see this error:
Jan 17 13:12:29 NT-MAIL01 pop3d: Connection, ip=[::ffff:]
Jan 17 13:12:29 NT-MAIL01 pop3d: chdir /var/vmail/example.com/tuser: No such file or directory
When looking in the /var/vmail/ directory, I see that no folders have been created for the domain or user:
[root@NT-MAIL01 vmail]# ll
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 16 17:04 mailfilters
How can I get this to work?

chmod vmail:vmail /var/vmail

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Can I assume you meant chown and not chmod?

The permissions of the folder currently belong to vmail:vmail:
[root@NT-MAIL01 var]# ll /var
total 80
drwx------ 3 vmail vmail 4096 Jan 17 14:34 vmail
Either way, I did run the "chown" command and even recreated the domain along with a test mailbox, but to no avail. It still doesn't create the folder
