vpopmail to remote mysql server. The users are not authenticated. I
have taken following steps.

1 - Database migration and restoration to the remote mysql DB server.
2 - Fixed the permission on remote database to allow access to Vpopmail IP.
3 - Fixed firewall settings.
4 - Edited the vpopmail.mysql file to connect to remote DB IP.

Can you connect from the commandline?
