I've found out the problem already. After postfix delivered the mail to my
mailbox, I can login now...

Subject: Failed to create storage with data

I am trying to setup dovecot with postfix and postgres. After I got dovecot
connected to postgres and use Outlook Express to try to login, I have the
following problem:

Jan  4 23:38:22 bluemountain imap-login: Login: chris [::ffff:]
Jan  4 23:38:22 bluemountain dovecot-auth: Login process 9 disconnected Jan
4 23:38:22 bluemountain imap(chris): Failed to create storage with data:
Jan  4 23:38:22 bluemountain dovecot: child 24616 (imap) returned error 89

The status of the directory /var/local/mail/mydomain.com/chris is 777, so I
have no clue why it doesn't work.
