Two things...  I actually just directly query the mysql backend that 
vpopmail uses with the phpbb authentication scripts. And, having typed
that last line out loud, I see that this is fairly off-topic AND that I
probably should have used vpopmaild! Thank you. I can't believe I didn't
stumble onto that when I was trying to hatch up a solution.

be compromised is that web server's chroot and the table for that
domain's mail.
