Courier IMAP, MySQL, Postfix and Maildrop

Has anybody setup the combination of  Courier IMAP, MySQL, Postfix and 
Courier Maildrop and managed to get it to work?

I am so close I could just scream, but I can not get any of the Courier 
components to work!

I get postfix to query my MySQL database just fine so it will accept 
recipient mail.  However, when I try to get courier maildrop to deliver 
the mail I get:

fuggle# maildrop -d test at
Invalid user specified.

There is no record of it querying the database even though I know I have 
the maildropmysql.config setup correctly (tabs, no spaces .... etc).  As 
a matter of fact, it doesn't seem to matter what is in the file and just 
touching it results in the same thing!

I am having the same problem with Courier IMAP, it doesn't seem to read 
the database either and I have setup authmysqlrc appropriately as well 
and placed authmysql at the front of the authmodulelist.

Does anybody have any ideas what I should look for to solve this 
problem?  It is truly maddening.

Thanks in advance,

Tom Veldhouse
