I found something.... if I set the /etc/shadow to 644 it runs, but it's a big security hole.
now I change it back to 640 (root:shadow) and put for test all these users: qmaild,qmaill,qmailp,qmailq,qmailr,qmails,vpopmail in the shadow group, but it doesnt work.

I try to use smtp-auth for system user but I get: 535 authorization failed (#5.7.0)
if I use the same user/password for the pop3 login, it works fine.
I compile vpopmail with: ./configure --enable-passwd --enable-logging=v so vchkpw can read the /etc/passwd.
/var/log/mail tells me: May 11 10:43:57 mailgate vpopmail: vchkpw-smtp: system user shadow entry not found xxxx:127.0.0.1
where is my mistake - or do you need any additional informations?
thanks in advance -- Thomas Koenig
