vpopmail's roaming-users support is poorly designed, slow, and prone to 

relay-ctrl is not, and is even, in fact, safe to use over NFS (I've done it)

that's what email is so handy for.  You send your users an email telling them 
they have to change in their mail clients, and give them a URL with some 
pictures and instructions, and notify your support staff about the change, 
and train them how to handle the situation.. then send that email every week 
for 3 months.  After the 3 months is up, shut pop-before-smtp off.
