I don't know about norway, but here in Switzerland we are using IDN
domainnames for special character domain-names. From the Mailserver
point of view, the domainname stays in the 7bit ascii-range, the
clients must make sure they convert everything accordingly. So for the
domain .ch, I'd use vadddomain xn--4ca0bs.ch (punycode). This works
fine, it's only a hassle for the users.
Maybe it would be possible for vpopmail to do this conversion in
vpopmail if special characters are detected?

Hope that helps and regards
