Got it. Permissions for invoking sslserver are fine, no need to change 
anything. I traced the problem to vauth_getpw(), where vpopmail's user is 
compared to the domain uid/gid. Thus vadddomain -u mike4 creates the entire 
domain skeleton with uid/gid 516 (mike4), and vauth_getpw returns 507 for 
vpopmail - so it fails.
The solution is vadddomain -g 516 which creates the domain skeleton with 
vpopmail:mike4 owner and group. This ensures vpopmail can authenticate whilst 
maintaining group rights for file system quotas via group quotas.
Dovecot imap/imaps/pop3s still authenticate but ONLY if I specify a custom sql 
query in it's configuration AND update the vpopmail mysql table uid/gid with 
the corresponding values i.e. 507/516. Although this method works, I still feel 
there's something funky going with dovecot+vpopmail authentication. Having to 
manually update the vpopmail table with uid/gid after domain creation isn't 
very elegant, can something be done about this? Is it not possible to modify 
vpopmail to store the uid/gid instead of the constant values of 0/0?
