there isn't one, it loads them right into the database.

older versions of vpopmail it was hard compiled using vmysql.h
newer versions (including 5.4.x) use ~vpopmail/etc/vpopmail.mysql

you can do one of two things, and I've done them both so I know they
work. You can use vconvert -m -c on the old machine, move the data
over, and vconvert -c -m on the new machine, or, if you have nothing
else but information for vpopmail on the mysql database, you can stop
mysql, tar up the databases, copy them over, and start mysql up on the
new server. If you're using different versions of mysql this may not
work, and make sure that before you touch the databases you stop mysql
