I had the same problem for about three months. I finally made the mods that
I had seen in the archives for vpopmail to remove the authdamon and my
problem went away. I am using vpopmail 5.3.9 qmail 1.03 and courier 1.5.3 I
do not run the authdamon's at all.
that was the only way I could get it to work.
