There's one thing I don't understand - why does vadddomain have the -u and 
-i/-g options in the first place, if they don't seem to work fully?

Perhaps I am missing something for which I apologize, but I can't imagine those 
options having been implemented to partially support non vpopmail/vchkpw + 
userdir - unless of course this is either a bug or those options haven't been 
fully tested (which I seriously doubt considering the products age).

Can anyone from Inter7 officially clarify this please?
