That was one of the questions that I had regarding vipmap. Since I am using
the authvchkpw module in Courier, I thought that vipmap would work. Since
vpopmail seems geared toward using Courier-IMAP, if certain features are not
compatible, it would be helpful it that information was documented

If vipmap, in fact, does not work with Courier-IMAP, is there a POP3 and
IMAP solution that does work with vipmap?
