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 binaries. 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.
