*nod*  I've got it all figured out now...  Makes sense now :)

Known bugs?  Hrm.. I didn't see anything in the known bugs section... 
No biggie tho...

I've configured and set it up using authvchkpw and it works perfectly. 
I've got vpopmail running in mysql replication mode too :)  I can
authenticate correctly and it appears to be working great!

Incidentally, I had previously asked (several weeks ago) about vpopmail
not allowing me to authenticate using only my username when the address
is in the default domain.  The reason it was failing was because I was
not using authvchkpwd...  I was using authmysql...  (and here I thought
I was being all cool because I could get it running..)

Well, we live and learn...  :)

Thanks all,
