I ran tail -f /var/log/maillog and then ran telnet localhost 110 as before and received no authentication logging.

/var/log/maillog does contain the following with a tail -n 20 /var/log/maillog:

The problem:

I can't log into any of my vpopmail accounts (just building this out
for the first time) and nothing is being logged in /var/log/messages
(or anywhere else in /var/log) regarding why my authentication is
failing. Does anyone have any ideas about anywhere an error message
about the error might get logged?

What's in /var/log/maillog ?
