Can't receive mail for virtual user

Mozmonkey
I followed the dovecot instructions (http://wiki.dovecot.org/HowTo/SimpleVirtualInstall) to create a simple virtual user installation with the /etc/dovecot/passwd file.  However, whenever I try to send a message to the virtual user, Postfix has a problem delivering it.  Postfix is delivering messages to ~/Maildir, but Dovecot is trying to use /home/vmail/.  How can I get the 2 apps to work together?

I've set up SASL, SSL and Dovecot LDA.

Dovecot version: 1.0.13 (from source)
Postfix version: 2.5.1 (from source)
OS: Fedora Core 4

Here's are my config files:

use dovecot LDA to deliver mail
virtual_transport = dovecot


Alternatively, configure postfix to use the same Maildir as dovecot
using virtual_mailbox_maps.
