qmail-pop3d don't want to access /etc/passwd. In fact it does not want
to access any file for autenticating anybody.

Are you sure you've compiled vpopmail with '--enable-passwd'???
_THIS_ error messages tells vchkpw searches vpopmail handled domains for
user 'phi', to be exactly it searched in a (presumbly non-existant)
domain with no name.

If vchkpw is not able to find a user in /etc/passwd the error message is
more like

vchkpw: system user not found phi:

P.S.: For future mails to this list you really should disable "Reply-To".
      1.) It's superfluous. It contains the same address as "From" and
          therefore is absolutely useless.
      2.) It makes it impossible to easily reply to the list for those MUAs
          capable of List-Reply by evaluating 'List-Post' header.
          'Reply-To' takes, for obvious reasons, precedence over
 Thank you.
