i read this as: you want to save your email account settings (passwords, 
usernames....) but you don't want to save the emails, correct?
well. at least mysqldump the vpopmail database and save the 
/var/qmail/control  and /var/qmail/users  directories.

you can save the ~vpopmail/domains directory structure without the 
emails, too. (find ~vpopmail/domains -type d)

maybe he doesn't want his complete email setup to go oneway to nirvana, 
when his disk dies? everybody should backup his email settings. (it's 
hard enough to tell your customers that all their unfetched mails are 
lost, but that all there email accounts are gone too? the learning 
password feature is great, but it doesn't cover what a backup can do.)
