Could it be that you're linking against MySQL client 3 instead of MySQL client 4? Or is your MySQL 4.0 client library trying to connect to MySQL 4.1 server? You've definitely got a version mismatch of *some* sort....

Also, I'd strongly recommend NOT using MySQL Server 4.1.0. It was released just to convince people that MySQL AB follows the "release early, release often" philosophy (though that version is ages old by now), but it really has too many bugs. If you absolutely need the latest MySQL (for subselects and derived tables, for example, though I don't see how you need use them in the vpopmail database) then install from the 4.1 bitkeeper branch. Instructions are on

If you don't know what you want, you want MySQL 4.0.13. And you want to uninstall MySQL Client 3.
