vmailmgr does such a thing since there isn't just one user for all
domains. It's quite handy, using ucspi-unix and having php talk to the
socket and speaking a protocol.
coupled with vmail.inc, you can do just about anything with vmailmgr and
php. I think there's a squirrelmail plugin for it, which is pretty
nice, since then users don't have to log into a seperate interface to
change password, vacation reply, etc.
I think a daemon would be an excellent addition to vpopmail.
