IMAP not receiving virtual mailbox mail on Postfix/Courier setup
I recently followed the 'Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (CentOS 6.2 x86_64)' guide on HowToForge, and after a lot of graft I have now got the server to a point where I can send and receive mail internally and externally and load the Squirrelmail webpage; however, just as a cruel last little stumbling block, I have discovered here on the home straight that I am not receiving any mail into IMAP since yesterday afternoon, meaning that whilst I can send mail from Squirrelmail, I do not receive any there.
Now, I wish I could tell you what changes I made yesterday afternoon to allow it to briefly work for a few hours before stopping again, but alas, I have made so many changes before and since that I really have no clue. At the time when mail was coming in, yesterday 11am-1pm approx, Squirrelmail wasn't yet loading so I wasn't aware that it was downloading anything.
The failure to download anything into Squirrelmail comes from the fact that IMAP isn't receiving anything new (the six e-mails in the inbox below are the ones that came in yesterday):

This is more or less resolved now, as per post 279699 on the HowToForge forums - problem seems to have been with my having both mydestination and virtual_mailbox_domains in main.cf pointing to my domain name.
