postfix and virtual domain problems...

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, but I'll ask anyway...

I have a postfix/courier-imap mail server that works just fine if I am sending to a local user (as in:, where '' is the dnsdomainname of the server). I can send and receive e-mail just fine. I've tried to set up a virtual domain following on-line FAQ's and How-To's I've found on the internet and things are SORTA working, but...

Whenever I receive email for a user at the virtual domain, postfix errors with the following error:
Apr 27 07:21:02 tree-stand postfix/virtual[15103]:  6EF8DB5410: to=<>, relay=virtual, delay=0, status=deferred (mailbox ///home/user/.maildir: cannot open file: Permission denied)
For the local domain, I get the following message after a successful delivery:
Apr 27 07:21:02 tree-stand postfix/local[15101]: 822A4B5414: to<>, relay=local, delay=0, status=sent (maildir)
Apr 27 07:21:02 tree-stand postfix/cleanup[15098]: A9148B5416: message-id=<>
Both e-mails were sent from the same remote client (my cell phone).

Anyone have any clue where I need to look next?

Thanks in advance!
