So go on and debug manually where it fails:

su -c 'printf "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" | \
  strace -fF -o /tmp/x -s 4096 \
  ~vpopmail/bin/vchkpw printenv 3<&0 || echo "Failed: $?"' - vpopmail

Inspect /tmp/x where vchkpw failed.

This assumes you're:
- running Bash
- using Linux

If you're not using Linux but a *BSD replace 'strace' with an
appropriate call to 'truss'.

Don't know. It's a tagline from a 2k+ lines file, randomly choosen
(not even by myself, but by my MUA).
