Default Problem with pop3 and postfix

I have set up a mail server using postfix. It is working properly, mails for different users are coming in but when i use telnet localhost pop3, i get ERR- No such file or directory

In main.cf the directory to store mail is "home/vmail" however the mail is stored in "home/vmail/user/user/"

Is this the reason why pop3 is not working?

When you create a new user, you must send him an email first before you can use POP3. The Maildir is created when the first email arrives.
