I don't know know anything about the encryption, but IIRC, you can't
READ the vpopmail encryption, you have to encrypt the password received,
and compare that to what vpopmail has stored.

I would think the hardest integration would be the Samba side, so I
would start there, then add vpopmail and squid your Samba PDC.   It
looks like the Red Hat link I gave you isn't quite done with their
integration, but if you have the time - work with the Red Hat guys to
get it all working.  I'd bet that whatever they do on that site will end
up as a minimum $300 server product.  Single Sign-on (SSO) is on
everyones wish list, but it's hard to accomplish.  

At work, I use Netware 5.1 and Mercury/32 to accomplish file/mail SSO
integration, and export NDS as LDAP to allow for non Pegasus Mail (NDS
mail client) address books.  If I wanted squid/proxy auth, I assume I
could use LDAP, or just buy Novell's BorderManager.
It's not free, but it's stable and it works.  I'm sure you can do it
with MS products also - but I don't know what your motivation is: Free?
Non-MS?  Stability?  Reliability? OS of the Month? :)

Your English is fine, your quoting sucks :)  See if your mail client
does inline quoting.
