Even though I'm not convinced it's a vchkpw problem, I'm forwarding here;
sorry for the double post for those subscribed to both lists..
courier-imap doesn't use vchkpw -- it has its own version of vchkpw as an auth module. Make sure that you're configuring it to use authvchkpw and nothing else.
Perhaps take a look at Bill Shupp's toaster instructions <http://shupp.org/toaster/> for installing Courier.
