Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for the, um, help :)

Obviously /etc/shadow is owned by root.root - this is why I assume there is know way 
to do this
without running some part of the system as root or doing some funky group 
manipulations (all of
which I would view as being a very bad idea).

However I thought that there may have been a prefered way among the group members of 
handling this
problem. I assume that most people just run vpopmail using only vpopmail owned 
accounts. However I
also assume that if anyone is using system accounts that they aren't too thrilled with 
the idea of
running it as root. I was hoping to hear of of any other possible ways to get around
