Ok i was trying some things and now i really don't understand what's the 
problem here:

I took a random domain and reset the password with 
./vpasswd [EMAIL PROTECTED] test123
The pw_passwd and the pw_clear_passwd fields in the database get updated 
normally and vuserinfo gives the correct info. 
Yet still not able to authenticate via qmailadmin or via pop3

next i created a new domain vadddomain test.com test123
database fields are filled and vuserinfo reflects this, now i try to 
authenticate and it works! 

But it still won't authenticate the other domains :-(

How is this possible as the data layout is exactly the same for both 
users/domains in the database, even the encrypted password fields are the 

Please tell me where the hidden setting is,
