it appears that cram-md5 smtp auth with vpopmail-mysql isn't working. I
recall a patch from before that fixed smtp auth with vpopmail, was that
specific to cdb storage?
Which patch are you using? Is qmail-smtpd running as user vpopmail (or root)? Since qmail-smtpd calls vchkpw to authenticate the user, it should work
I have not had any reports of problems with the qmail-smtpd-auth-0.4.2.tar.gz patch included in the contrib directory of vpopmail 5.4.0. Older versions of this patch will not work, as they didn't correctly implement the chkpasswd interface (and neither did vchkpw). We fixed vchkpw for 5.4.0, but you may need to update your qmail-smptd to get CRAM-MD5 working again.
