urk. so, on a hunch, on the new server i ran 'vpasswd theirpass' -
exact same password. and after doing that, it worked fine.

cd ~vpopmail/domains
rm ~vpopmail/domains/*/vpasswd.cdb
for i in `ls -ld *`; do
    echo $i;

Maybe something with your CDB files is a bit strange, but it sounds like a rebuild did the trick.  So rebuild away.  If the cdb files don't exist, it'll do it from the text file.  Note that the time between removing the cdb files and creating them who knows what'd happen to mail, so down the smtp server first.

i knew i would leave out critical information - darnit.

i'm using mysql auth backend. so cdb files aren't used.
