Exclamation Mail Account isn`t working on CentOS3 with nginx, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3

Hello all,

i have used this guide:
http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ispconfig-3-p5

My system:
Linux vp7041.blow.de 2.6.18-028stab101.1 #1 SMP Sun Jun 24 19:50:48 MSD 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I have added a mailbox over ISPConfig but i can`t get it into my Thunderbird.

If i scan my server i see the ports are open:
----------------------
Not shown: 88 closed ports
PORT STATE SERVICE
21/tcp open ftp
22/tcp open ssh
25/tcp open smtp
53/tcp open domain
80/tcp open http
110/tcp open pop3
143/tcp open imap
993/tcp open imaps
995/tcp open pop3s
3306/tcp open mysql
8080/tcp open http-proxy
8081/tcp open blackice-icecap
----------------------

If i look in the log from the Mail i see this:
----------------------

Seems as if ispconfig is not fully installed or some steps of the guide have not been executed as the dovecot-swl.conf file is missing on your server.

Download the ispconfig tar.gz again and run the update.php script which is inside the install folder, choose to reconfigure services during update.
