roaming-users will not work with courier-imap4.x properly, will it ?

I use courier-imap4.0.6, vpopmail5.4 with qmail1.03.

Although the roaming user works well with pop3, I could not work
roaming-user ( imap before smtp ) option with imap.

How can I correct this problem ?

IMAP-before-SMTP is possible when using Courier-IMAP v3.x. However it only
works when configured "--with-authvchkpw --without-authdaemon". When
running --without-authdaemon, Courier-IMAP's authvchkpw code is able to make
use of vpopmail's roaming user functions to allow IMAP-before-SMTP
functionality. IMAP-before-SMTP is not possible when Courier-IMAP has been
complied --with-authdaemon, because in this mode the user's IP address is
not made available to the authvchkpw code (via the TCPREMOTEIP env var).
Also note that in Courier-IMAP v4.x and later, --without-authdaemon
functionality is no longer available thus preventing IMAP-before-SMTP from
