In creating the vpopmail RPMs we use internally, I found the only way was to patch things. The one we're currently using is below... If you're not using some sort of package management, you should (obviously) double-check ownership of various files after the normal vpopmail install process. http://www.redwire.net/~jccleaver/patches/vpopmail.no-root-needed.5.4.19.patch Regards, -jc
