Guess I made myself not clear. 'mail user management' was meant for
'e-mail only users' only! Even with only one e-mail-domain I find it
easier to maintain these users e.g. using 'qmailadmin' than to
maintain '/etc/passwd' entries.

I added '?!' because you wondered about why somebody would want to use
vpopmail for only a single domain and I can not answer this question
for everybody else. So '?' meant to say: "Maybe somebody has different
reasons for doing this?" and '!' was intended to express: "This is the
reason why I do install vpopmail even on single-domain servers!" :-)
