Default SquirrelMail Question (Perfect Server: CentOS 6.4 / ISPConfig

I followed the guide for the perfect server using CentOS 6.4, ISPConfig 3, Apache, etc.

The issue I have is with SquirrelMail. Once in ISPConfig, I can create the email accounts (or Email Mailbox) just fine, but when I go to try and log in, SquirrelMail just hangs.

What I mean is, I'm greeted with the login screen but when I use the username and password and hit login, it just sits there and does nothing. Sometimes it will return an error page saying "ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server" which I have no clue why considering I'm not attempting to use IMAP at all.

Does anyone have any input? Thanks!

EDIT: Also on the SquirrelMail login page where it asks for "Name", I assume that means the username of the mailbox I created. But am I supposed to be putting just the username, or the username@domain.com in the field? Either way it doesn't work, but still would like to know for the future.

So it turns out this fixes the issue:

ln -s /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf /etc/dovecot-sql.conf
ln -s /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf /etc/dovecot.conf

Hope that helps some of you out.
