Yeah.  That's an issue that I'm still struggling with.  vpopmail has always
used /home, and *not* been FHS compliant.  Therefore, when you set a prefix,
it has to assume FHS compliance, which means a prefix would be like /var,
and so it has to tack on /vpopmail.

That's why when you set the prefix to /home/vpopmail, it starts tacking on
/var/vpopmail and /etc/vpopmail.

If you're *not* going to use the FHS compliance, don't set a prefix.  It
will use whatever the vpopmail user's home directory is.

I know it's unlikely you can let me, but on the off chance, is there any
chance you could get me remote access to this system so I could debug the

Because of the sheer amount of changes made in regards to authentication
backends, the amount of possible issues that could cause this is pretty

If not, can you please verify that it's using the correct etc directory
(ie: it's looking at the correct vpopmail.mysql file), and that the 
file is accurate?  Also, please give me the output of:

  nm ~vpopmail/etc/vpopmail.authmodule
  ldd ~vpopmail/etc/vpopmail.authmodule
