Mandrake 9.1
  Qmail 1.03
  Vpopmail 5.3.24

I am setting up a new server with the latest (devel)
version of vpopmail, using MySQL as the backend.  I
edited vmysql to point to the database server, and
have confirmed that the (MySQL) username and password
work by authenticating from the mail server to the
MySQL server using the 'mysql' program.

However, when I test POP authentication via telnet, I
get the following error:

--- CUT HERE ---
[EMAIL PROTECTED] vpopmail-5.3.24]# telnet localhost 110
Connected to localhost (
Escape character is '^]'.
user alan
pass bofh123
vmysql: sql error[3]: Unknown column 'pw_name' in
'field list'
-ERR authorization failed
Connection closed by foreign host.
--- CUT HERE ---

I have checked several of the domain tables in the
database, and they do indeed have the 'pw_name'
column, and it appears to be defined in the 'vmysql.h'
file.  The README.mysql file does not shed any light
on this.

I was wondering if anyone here would be able to shed
some light on this, and let me know what I appear to
have done wrong?

In case it is relevent, my vpopmail configuration
looks like this:

--- CUT HERE ---
./configure --enable-tcprules-prog=/usr/bin/tcprules \
  --enable-tcpserverfile=/etc/tcp.smtp \
  --enable-clear-passwd=y \
  --enable-mysql=y \
  --enable-valias=y \
  --enable-file-locking=y \
  --enable-many-domains=y \
  --enable-defaultquota=25214400S,1000C \
--- CUT HERE ---

TIA for your help and insight.
