Sounds like there's a problem with that account's Maildir.

Use vuserinfo to see what the home directory is set to. su to vpopmail and see if you can get to that directory. Make sure there are three directories, new, cur and tmp in there. Compare the permissions and ownership to another user's Maildir that is working correctly.

Info on the Sniffter hand-held Network Tester:

All the permissions are the same in this directory as ones that are working fine.

When I do a vuserinfo on this user, it shows that it is able to authenticate, by giving a recent time of authentication, but it is not able to read the Maildir for some reason.

The permissions in this dir are:

drwx------  2 vpopmail  vchkpw  367104 Jan 15 21:40 cur
-rw-r--r--  1 vpopmail  vchkpw     297 Jan 19 09:24 maildirsize
drwx------  2 vpopmail  vchkpw   86016 Jan 19 09:24 new
drwx------  2 vpopmail  vchkpw     512 Jan 19 09:24 tmp

and the dir above it...the users home dir:

drwx------  3 vpopmail  vchkpw  512 Oct 26 00:27 .
drwx------  9 vpopmail  vchkpw  512 Jan 12 15:22 ..
drwx------  8 vpopmail  vchkpw  512 Jan 19 08:29 Maildir
