FC3, Postfix, and Dovecot

Hey - I'm configuring a mail system on my FC3 full installation with SELinux. Postfix seems to be working fine, but Dovecot has some issues. Squirrel Webmail "ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP-server." When I try to connect via Thunderbird, it connects, authenticates, but then just sits there with no folders (besides Inbox, but that's there by default) or messages, when I know I have messages.

The second problem is that whenever I send messages to a user besides root, I get a return that says "Permission denied accessing /home/[user]/Maildir/tmp" The folder's owner is the user and the group is postfix. Owner and group have 7 access, so the CHMOD of all the folders is 770. Any ideas?
