I think the root of the problem here is that he's running qmail-pop3d
and trying to use that for SMTP AUTH somehow.

There's no reason to run POP3 on an SMTP only machine.

Of course vchkpw will look for a user's Maildir if it's authenticating
for POP3.  Try using qmail-smtpd with a patch for SMTP AUTH.
