Who's 'UID 63' and 'GID 65' on your system? User vpopmail? If not you
might simply have an access problem to 'vpasswd.cdb' as it's only
readable to "root" and "vpopmail" but not to qmaild, which is used in
default installations for starting up qmail-smtpd.

If you have enabled 'passwd' users as well in vpopmail configuration
you'll have to run qmail-smtpd as user root for being able to read
'/etc/passwd' and if existing '/etc/shadow', else you'll only need to
run qmail-smtpd as UID/GID vpopmail/vchkpw.

Best regards
