The solution is simple - use SMTP-AUTH instead of imap-before-smtp.  If
they can authenticate via IMAP, using SMTP-AUTH-patched qmail can also use
vchkpw to authenticate against the vpopmail database.  I understand the
desire to make things easy for the users by letting them use
imap-before-smtp, but it's really not the best way to do things these
days...  If you really, truely must use imap-before-smtp, use a different
IMAP server.
