vpopmail's roaming users should be fine for a smaller system such as
this one.  You wouldn't nessarily want to use it in a clustered
environment, but it should be fine for a single-server, smaller
configuration.  If you're clustered, or planning on clustering,
then Matt Simmerson's tcpserver patch would be a good alternative.

Agreed.  SMTP authentication is the prefered method these days,
but, if because of your user-base, this is not feasable, roaming
users should be fine in this type of environment.
