According to the FAQ:
3. compile courier-imap with --without-authdaemon --with-authvchkpw
So I do all of this by the book. Now, courier-imap doesn't work if I add the -user=vpopmail -group=vchkpw directives to imapd.rc (as in a vpopmail user can't authenticate).
According to /var/log/messages:
Jul 11 00:53:33 hoss authdaemon: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: Permission denied
Are you sure you compiled *without* authdaemon? You shouldn't get an authdaemon error if you're only using authvchkpw.
Who manages the vpopmail FAQ? Can we add a line that says "don't compile courier with authdaemon" as line 1?
