Already did, here's the output:
[root@mountaineer ~]# authtest kevin@<domain name filtered> <password filtered> Authentication succeeded.
Authenticated: kevin@<domain name filtered> (uid 503, gid 503) Home Directory: /home/mail/<domain name filtered>/kevin Maildir: (none) Quota: (none) Encrypted Password: (none) Cleartext Password: <password filtered> Options: (none)

Hello, I built and installed courier 0.54.2 RPMs on Fedora Core 6. I then setup the authentication system to use MySQL, and setup a virtual domain with the maildirs living in /home/mail/[domain.com]/ [username] I created a courier user (503) and a courier group (503), chowned the entire /home/mail structure to courier:courier. I also configured the record in the passwd table for uid=503 and gid=503. Despite all of this, when I attempt to login to any of these accounts, I get the following entries in the log: Feb 18 14:08:27 mountaineer imapd: Connection, ip= [::ffff:<filtered IP address>] Feb 18 14:08:31 mountaineer imapd: kevin@<domain name filtered>: chdir(/home/mail/<filtered domain name>/kevin) failed!!

What on earth could I be missing?
You're missing any indication that your authentication database is set up correctly. You paraphrased how you think you've set up your mysql-based authentication, but you did not post your actual authentication data. There's a likely disconnect between what you think has happened, and what actually happened.
Use the authtest utility in the courier-authlib package to verify that your authentication configuration is set up properly.
