Not the latest, but version 3.0.4 .  This was copiled from source.  I
have setup the same version of courier from RPM using the SRPMS at
<http://www.qmailtoaster.com>, on a test box, and Courier-IMAP is
logging users in using the default domain.

I am running MySQL on the backend.  I think you are meaning that
Courier-IMAP does not read the 'vpopmail.mysql' file; is that correct? 
Regardless, I just made it world-readble, and tried logging in:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] root]# telnet localhost 143
connected to van-srv41 []
Escape character is '^]'.
STARTTLS] Courier-IMAP ready. Copyright 1998-2004 Double Precision,
Inc.  See COPYING for distribution information.
A01 LOGIN alan SeEeCcRrEeTt
A01 NO Login failed.
Connection closed by foreign host.

(I rather suspected that wouldn;t work, but it was worth a try).

[EMAIL PROTECTED] root]# ls -l ~vpopmail/etc
total 36
-rw-r--r--    1 vpopmail vchkpw         12 May 30 15:53 defaultdomain

-rw-r--r--    1 vpopmail vchkpw         42 May 28 07:38 vpopmail.mysql

I am suspecting there is something (unrelated) to this server, because I
have also tried recompiling Courier-IMAP, but it gets to a certain point
then hangs during the configure stage (and it takes a couple minutes to
get the full login prompt). This obviously is not your issue, but it's
just odd.

Anyway, any other ideas you may have would be greatly appreciated.
