    It says the message has been delievered, and it has I can see it in the Maildir folder, but I am unable to retrieve the message :S

    I am useing the http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_fedora_core_3 guide as reference for my CentOS 3 setup.

    I am also unable to recieve the e-mail unless I chmod the folders to 777, even though the user has ownership of the folders.

    You're using ipop3d which uses the mbox format, not Maildir. So you should either have Postfix deliver to mbox, or you install a POP3/IMAP daemon that uses Maildir (e.g. Courier or Dovecot).

    If you want to stick with Maildir, then please post the output of
    ls -la /home
    ls -la /home/phantomk
    ls -la /home/phantomk/Maildir
