As an aside, my understanding was that vpopmail user should have /sbin/nologin as shell (or your flavor's equivalent...).

That's incorrect, it can cause problems with maildrop and other programs in .qmail (or .qmail-alias files) that use the SHELL environment variable.

If the account doesn't have an encrypted password ("!!" in the password field of /etc/shadow), then no one will be able to log into it.
