I'm not seeing your logic.... if a user has made it to checking their inbox then the credentials would have already been checked via vchkpw, correct or not and the appropriate errors would be listed.
Also, with a timeout error code your bound to get support calls asking if you can bend the rules for that user because they have a "very" important message (usually larger penis ads) verses you simply say no new messages and no one knows the difference.
