I didn't do anything in particular:-)

All of my users are virtual, so userid, homedir, quota and password
are all stored in mysql.

I have even tried manually logging with with telnet local host 143.
Below is an example of the one ID that works "jknott" and one that
doesn't "mailtest". I can log into the server, via ssh or su - from
my own account to mailtest and other IDs.

mailtest: Initialization failed: mail_location not set and
autodetection failed:
Mail storage auto detection failed with home=/home/mailtest

My guess - you haven't set mail_location, so auto-detection fails
because mailtest has never received any mail.

I would update dovecot.conf and set mail_location.
