Sounds like there's a problem with that account's Maildir.
Use vuserinfo to see what the home directory is set to.  su to vpopmail 
and see if you can get to that directory.  Make sure there are three 
directories, new, cur and tmp in there.  Compare the permissions and 
ownership to another user's Maildir that is working correctly.

Actually, that may indeed be the case.  I have around 500 files in /cur 
and about 1700 in /new.  So, I cannot believe that this is typical 
behavior for vpopmail.  If it is I am going to cry.  I dont want to have 
to deal with anymore migrations on this box.  I cannot take it!  What 
can I do to make this right?

I agree with Charlie.
Thing to do is set the DATALIMIT higher, it is because it is unable to 
use that amount of memory that is required to run through the entire 
directory structure.

There is normally nothing wrong with the Maildir itself most of the time.

Is this synonomous with changing qmails softlimit via tcpserver?

As another poster mentioned, try increasing the memory softlimit set on 
qmail-pop3d.  It's probably just running out of memory trying to scan 
that directory.

It isn't a vpopmail problem, unless you can't do SMTP AUTH for the user 
or qmailadmin fails.

It is the softlimit that is causing it. Not vpopmail. vchkpw hands it 
off to qmail-pop3d, and it can not secure enough memory to process the 
Maildir. Ive put mine up higher, and it works perfectly again.

All the permissions are the same in this directory as ones that are 
working fine.

When I do a vuserinfo on this user, it shows that it is able to 
authenticate, by giving a recent time of authentication, but it is not 
able to read the Maildir for some reason.

The permissions in this dir are:
