mails not being delivered to squirrell mailbox


I installed a mailserver on ubuntu and also installed squirrelmail as the webmail.
I am able to send emails from the web interface but not able to see emails that are sent to me. I am only able to see the emails in the folder on the machine. It looks like I am missing some configuration. Help!!

I got more information after experimenting with a lot of things. Basically, all mails are being delivered into /var/mail/username. However, there is also /home/maildir/new/ . when I copy the file from /var/mail/username to the /home/maildir/new/ folder, I am able to see the mail as new in webmail (squirrelmail). So if I can direct Squirrelmail to look in the /var/mail/username, I will be able to retrieve new emails. On the other hand,if I can direct all mails to be dropped to be dropped in /home/maildir/new/ , that will be perfect. Help! Help!
