well, i have this from the source (bigdir.c).
it looks like the maximum of users/domains per directory is 100 (it's 
defined in vauth.h : MAX_USERS_PER_LEVEL 100)
this seems to match your /[0-9]/ subdirectories. Ho you ended up, having 
that enormous amount in your domain root dir, is somewhat more 
it looks like, vpopmail counts domains per directory and uid.
meaning: you can add 100 domains for user customer1 ('vadddomain -u 
customer1 domain.com') and they all are created in /var/vpopmail/
then you add another 100 domains for user customer2 ('vadddomain -u 
customer2 domain.com') and they also get created in /var/vpopmail/

so, i assume, in your case, you have at least 173 different system users 
with an average of almost 100 domains per user.
