[CALUG] Postfix help

Was wondering if someone that's had experience setting up Postfix on Debian
would mind helping me out. This is my first try and setting up ANY mail
server. Main problem I'm having is getting postfix to use Maildir (instead
of mbox) so I can use courier-pop to allow POP3 access. I'm using O'Reilly's
"Postfix: The Definitive Guide" as reference and I've also been checking
around on the web. As far as I can tell I've configured Postfix properly,
but it continues to use the mbox format and I'm unable to check for new mail
via POP (nothing shows up because it's not being put in the user's maildir
directory). Postfix is working properly otherwise as far as I can tell. I
can send and receive email using the old "mail" command-line program.
I know I can use other POP programs besides Courier that use the mbox format
instead (format doesn't really matter to me). But the fact that I can't get
this working is bugging me and I want to know why it's not working before
moving on to using something else.
If someone's available on AIM/ICQ to help me out, that might be easier.
Thanks in advance!
