Did you read an answer to you question by Copy Wright? If you want to
setup each users on the server manually. You can retain the old password
of every users by enabling the password learning feature of vpopmail.
Next time they login, vchkpw will learn their password.
The other solution is to copy the appropriate files: assign, vpasswd,
and their cdb versions. Pay attention to the uid and gid, they must be
the same for old and new servers, otherwise adjust accordingly.

See above, either create users with blank password and enable
--enable-learn-password, or copy the files from the old server. The
method used is crypt(3). There is no way you can decode the password
