Okay, that's quite good.

Yes, both use it, but both in a different way. qmail-pop3d uses the
vchkpw binary to check passwords; Courier-IMAP indeed has its own
vpopmail authentication module, built around the vpopmail API.

What exactly do they logs say? You said "everything seems fine", but
this isn't too helpful - what _exactly_ do the logs say?

Please don't give us your interpretation on data; give us the data

Looks good, from my point of view.

Erm - where's the execute bit for the owner of vchkpw..?

Please issue "chmod -R 755 /home/vpopmail/bin" to set all needed
permissions. Then check again if you can access your mail by POP3.

That would have led to a syntax error; there is an argument missing.
Don't do that.
