That depends on how your postfix/dovecot installation is set up.
If they're using plain old POP3 authentication and are capable of using
MD5 hashed passwords there shouldn't be a problem in re-using them.
OTOH you could leave your "clear text enabled" recompiled vpopmail
running and it should "learn" the clear text passwords as the users log
in next time to get their mail.
