vpopmail-5.2.1 contains a bug which causes auth problems with courier-imap
and sqwebmail

vpopmail-5.2.2 contains a fix for that bug, as does the recent vpopmail
"development" builds. You can download 5.2.2 or the development builds from

Once you have upgraded your vpopmail, you need to recompile any other add-on
applications that use the vpopmail system eg qmailadmin, courier-imap
