Sounds like a possible permissions problem, or maybe a problem with the path?

I assume you have your qmail run script for the submission service (port 587) 
calling vchkpw.  Does that user have enough privileges to launch vchkpw, and is 
vchkpw a setuid binary?  I'm trying to remember how vchkpw is able to read 
/home/vpopmail/etc/vpopmail.mysql without that file being visible to other 
users -- it's been a long time since I worked with that code.
