Default Courier IMAP/POP3 can't auth to mysql db

I'm in the process of installing a mailserver using postfix,courier,mysql, etc. I'm getting very close but I'm stuck when I try to test courier authentication to mysql. According to my maillog, authdaemond keeps appending a '.' to my login name 'vmail' and my database called 'mail'. I've made sure my

MYSQL_USERNAME          vmail
MYSQL_PASSWORD          vmail
MYSQL_PORT              3306    
MYSQL_OPT               0
MYSQL_DATABASE          mail    
MYSQL_USER_TABLE        users   
MYSQL_CRYPT_PWFIELD     password        
DEFAULT_DOMAIN                  examples.com 
MYSQL_UID_FIELD         uid
MYSQL_GID_FIELD         gid
MYSQL_LOGIN_FIELD       login   
MYSQL_HOME_FIELD        home
MYSQL_NAME_FIELD        name
Here's the error:
