We use it in a production environment with ca. 500 named Users and didnt 
discover any related problems for about 4 weeks - but we do _not_ use "smtp-
relay-after-pop" - feature, because this was one of the reason to migrate from 
the old WinNT-VPOP solution, instead I applied the qmail-auth patch with an 
addiotional patch to make it also use LDAP. But before you ask we for that 
patch I must admit you that this patch needs some more work.
I will submit it as soon as it has proven its stability.

Yes, this is also one of my favorite goals !!
But until now there is only basic-LDAP support in vpopmail and there is a lot 
of work to do. 
I am willing to adress some of the LDAP-steps, because we need it.
Let me know if you already did some work.
