In vpopmail's README it is recommended that if all of your pop email
accounts are under virtual domains, you can increase the security of your
pop server by running it under the uid and gid of vpopmail/vchkpw using
the tcpserver -u and -g options.

How to do this? If I change qmail-pop3d/run with

          tcpserver ... -u 89 -g 89 ...

where uid=89(vpopmail) gid=89(vchkpw), I got this error:

$ fetchmail -p APOP -c -u fetchmail -p APOP -c -u [EMAIL PROTECTED] x.x
Enter password for [EMAIL PROTECTED]:
fetchmail: Authorization failure on [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Any hint?
