maybe its the rebuilding of all the other packages, since I have only done the ones which were updated..
thanks, I will try that and see whether that makes a difference (since I am already using vpopmail 5.3.20

and then let you all know..

Is fixed in vpopmail-5.2.2, or in any recent 5.3.x development versions

You can download these from

Remember though, if you upgrade your vpopmail, you need to then go and
rebuild all the other apps such as qmailadmin and courier-imap, so that they
can link into the new vpopmail library files. It sounds like you might have
omitted this step?

Subject: [vchkpw] Vpopmail + qmail + courier + imp - IMAP login problem

Hi all, I am sure you have heard this one before, but I cannot seem to find the fix I am after and not sure which list the problem is relevant to.

I have the problem where once you login to imp (with IMAP) with more
than 5 characters long user part of the email, then all the shorter
usernames cannot login (until I restart the services)
[EMAIL PROTECTED] can login and check mail fine. logout fine.
then say the email [EMAIL PROTECTED] logs in and then
[EMAIL PROTECTED] can no longer login. I thn restart the services
and its all good until the longer email logs in again

does anyone know if the problem stems from courier-imap, imp or vpopmail
(vchkpw) or maybe even something else??

I am using;
vpopmail 5.3.20
qmail 1.0.3
qmailadmin 1.0.24
and imp 3.2.1

POP auth is not a problem.
I read before that it was a combination of vpopmail / qmailadmin /
courier-imap, so updated to development versions, suggested in the list
but to no avail.
please advise if you need to see any config/log stuff etc.
