make sure that the permission (uid and gid are the same on the new server.
also the qmail control files need to be copied over also. and the db needs
to match everything else.
so to sum it all up..
qmail, /var/vpopmail and the db all need to match. I have done this many
times and it is a very tricky operation.

Subject: [vchkpw] vpopmail/qmail migration
