That was it! Seems like everything is working now. I still have some other problems with qmailadmin, but that's a topic for another list.

Thanks to all!

Try doing :
  locate mysql_version.h
or perhaps
  locate my_base.h

The dir that contains these files would be the dir you plug into vpopmail's

Next you could try doing : locate libmysqlclient.a

The dir that contains this file would be the dir you plug into vpopmail's
