Basicly qmailadmin needs to be able to create files with
the right ownership. If all the domains are owned by vpopmail:vchkpw
then qmailadmin must either run as that user or be able to switch
the effective uid/gid (uses seteuid() and setegid()).
My guess is your setup won't work. You can easily check
by adding email accounts and forwards. If they work and
the permissions on the files are right, you are set.
