Have you tried "re-chowning" the files to be truly owned by the new UID/GID?

I'm just making this up as I go, so it's almost certain not to work as
is...but try something like.

chown 89:89 `find /home/vpopmail -user 1009` \
&& chown 89:89 `find /home/vpopmail -group 1004`


chown -R --from=1009 89 /home/vpopmail
chown -R --from=:1004 :89 /home/vpopmail
