I have a Debian (Woody) system and it is running shadow passwords. I have
qmail installed and woking just fine. I did a basic install (no config
options) for vpopmail. Everything installed fin but when I change my
/etc/inetd.conf file to this "pop3 stream tcp nowait root
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup qmail-popup email.byesville.net
/home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d Maildir" (all one line)

a webbased email system. What am I missing on the install for vpopmail. I

First, to enable system users, add --enable-passwd to your vpopmail configuration.
To log in to virtual domains, you need to use "USER [EMAIL PROTECTED]" or "USER username%domain.com" in the POP login.
