What's your problem with this paragraph? For getting vpopmail to work
you don't need the knowledge about internal workings.
For getting this knowledge to see if and how to improve your setup: read
the qmail documentation, it's all covered there.

What's your problem with this point? You're using INETD? So here you

If yes: what's the concrete problem?
If no: what's your interest in #13?

What's the problem with this? I mean ... you cited it, so you seem to
have a problem with it?!

To sum it up: you wrote you've trouble _configuring_ vpopmail.
configuring like the initial './configure' before compiling or
configuring like 'configure the rest of my system to get the mail
delivery and pop3-fetch working'?

If first problem is getting the mail stored in vpopmail mail
directories: remove the domain(s) you want to be processed through
vpopmail from '/var/qmail/control/locals'. Everything up there will be
threaded as _local_ like 'local qmail system' by qmail. When setting up
the domains using vpopmail command interface (vadddomain) it will be
correctly inserted into 'virtualdomains' (and rcpthosts) where it
belongs (beside that appropriate entries in '/var/qmail/users/' will be
