This could be from a number of problems, but most likely, the MySQL version has
changed between boxes, or mysql is in a different place on the machine.

vpopmail takes the mysql include and lib files and compiles them into the vpopmail

Changing versions may require recompiling vpopmail.

Other issues could be:

connectivity - can the vpopmail user log into mysql? Is the username and password
               correct? Does the mysql user physically have access to the port?

DNS - is the new machine properly set up?

Do you get any errors?

They would be helpful.
