i have RH6.2 using INETD. i already installed Qmail. the domain is in the
/var/qmail/control/locals /var/qmail/rcpthosts but i'm having problem
configuring vpopmail-5.2.1 on the INSTALL file after instruction number 11,
12 thank you very much.

11. Information details hiding
        Alot of the underlying qmail details are not covered in this
        file. This is on purpose. If you want to find out the internal
        workings of vchkpw and qmail look into /var/qmail/control files
        and /var/qmail/users/assign file.

12. How to use vchkpw with qmail-pop3d server

        Here is a sample startup line for qmail-pop3d and vchkpw

        env - PATH="/var/qmail/bin:/usr/local/bin" \
        tcpserver -H -R 0 pop-3 \
        /var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup your.domain.com \
        /home-dir-of-vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d Maildir

        If you want to authenticate against /etc/passwd do not use the -u -g
        options, since it would need to run as root.

        Notice where the vchkpw program goes.
        Some sites use pop3 instead of pop-3. /etc/services has the
        master list. grep pop /etc/services to find out.

        If you want to use inetd style startup use this:
                pop3 stream tcp nowait root \
                /var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup \
                qmail-popup mail.stilen.com \
                /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw \
                /var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d \

        If you want to use xinetd style use this:
service pop3
    disable              = no
    socket_type       = stream
    protocol             = tcp
    wait                   = no
    user                  = root
    server                = /var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup
    server_args        = foo.bar.com /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d Maildir
    log_type             = FILE /var/log/xinetd.log
    log_on_success  = HOST
    log_on_failure      = HOST RECORD

13. For sites using the mysql module and --enable-roaming-users=y it
    is highly suggested to use Matt Simersons tcpserver-mysql patch.
    This removes the need for vpopmail to compile a tcp.smtp.cdb file
    for each pop authentication. Instead, tcpserver looks directly
    into the vpopmail mysql table of IP's.

14. Good luck
