What version of vpopmail are you using?
There is a bug in vpopmail-5.2.1 that prevents courier-imap / sqwebmail etc
from being able to reliably authenticate
If you are using vpopmail-5.2.1 then I would recommend you upgrade to 5.2.2
or one of the later dev versions, as these contain fixes for this bug
After upgrading your vpopmail, don't forget that you will also need to
recompile all the other add-on apps that use the vpopmail functions eg
qmailadmin, courier-imap, sqwebmail
