have you set these?
    * imap_server_type = dovecot
    * default_folder_prefix = none (is set to empty string)
    * trash_folder = Trash
    * sent_folder = Sent
    * draft_folder = Drafts
    * show_prefix_option = false
    * default_sub_of_inbox = false
    * show_contain_subfolders_option = false
    * optional_delimiter = detect
    * delete_folder = false
    * force_username_lowercase = true

sorry - pulled from:
http://squirrelmail.org/docs/admin/admin-13.html#ss13.9

sounds to me like dovecot and postfix are both configured to use /home/$user/Maildir and squirrelmail is configured to look in /var/mail or something...

when you say all mail goes under /var/mail... are you seeing mailboxes being created there?
Also can you please load up your logs for me to see, postfix, dovecot and squirrelmail.

still sounds to me like something is looking in the wrong place...

delivered to procmail -a "$EXTENSION" ?

usually postfix will tell you "delivered to mailbox"

check where your procmail is configured to go...
are you using maildrop?
