I find the documentation for vpopmail very lacking on the subject of uid/gid handling. Where does vpopmail look up the uid/gid information for virtual domains (and their users) when using the default flat file db?

Why is the uid/gid information hard-coded to vpopmail on the configuration phase of compile? Just to make life harder for everyone, or for security reasons?

How can I change the uid/gid numbers for existing domains?
If not, is there any way to transfer all users from one domain to another?

PS. I find vpopmail just as unflexible as qmail, does anyone have good suggestions for an alternative to vpopmail? (Like a "Postfix" of virtual user IMAP/POP3 authentication systems...)
