Hi Info,

Three notes first:

- Writing in German to this list ain't a really good idea. Germans will
  be the minority here, so english is the preferred language.
- Sending your answer to the list is enough, I'm reading the list and
  don't need a copy in my PM mailbox.
- Setting "Reply-To" in your mails to anything different than this lists
  address is a bad idea, unless your mail is going to be OT and you want
  answers _only_ via PM. While you expect answers helping with your
  vpopmail problem you should set Reply-To to <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> or
  leave it empty.

OK, so it seems to lookup the correct user.

That's not correct.

This query fetches the whole data set, _including_ clear password
Have you done this query manually to see if the result contains the
clear text password?

As I don't run a MySQL backend for vpopmail authentication myself, could
anybody who does have a look if APOP is working in general with MySQL as
user data storage?

BTW: Christian, it might be usefull knowing which version of vpopmail
you're using, you didn't provide this information yet.
