Yes, and it's with those where there's no alternative to qmail and vpopmail.
At least, through a brief search of freshmeat, sf.net and google, I couldn't find anything that comes near vpopmail+qmailadmin+vqadmin+qmail.
Have you looked at JAMM? (http://jamm.sourceforge.net/) Basically it's a Java web interface to an LDAP directory for virtual domains and users. It's the same idea as vpopmail, but apparently works with any SMTP/POP3/IMAP server that supports LDAP (read: Postfix + Courier-IMAP from a glance over their HOWTO).
A previous admin here implemented a Postfix + Courier-IMAP + OpenLDAP + JAMM email solution for a client. I haven't really poked through the box so I can't say much other than it works for their 8000-odd users and I've never had to troubleshoot it. However, if I had to build a virtualized email box and for some reason couldn't use my usual qmail + vpopmail + qmailadmin combo, JAMM seems like an alternative.
