Sure...   I initially configured vpopmail to use mysql vith the
--enable-mysql flag...  I then used authmysql (with authdaemon) for
courier...  I turned off all other authentications within courier.

I never tried user%domain.com ... I always used [EMAIL PROTECTED] ... 
Maybe the @ works and the % doesn't?  It's possible that when you use
authvchkpw it properly handles the conversion from % to @ ... I believe
@ is what's in the database...  Might want to give that a whirl...  :)

Actually, reading more it appears that you are using authvchkpw... 
Hrm... curious...

Aha...  I think I found your problem...  Explicitly indicate
--without-authmysql or else it will compile it in because the mysql
libraries are present.  It looks like you're using authdaemon as
well...  I'm told that authdaemon is buggy ...  never encountered that,
but...  *shrug*

Best way to configure courier from what I've seen is to explicitly state
which modules you don't want...  In your case, it looks like you don't
want to use anything except authvchkpw ...

Try that and see what happens..  :)

I gave up on toaster setups...  Gonna write my own with details as to
why I chose each item ...  :P
