Can you post the content of your authdaemonrc file?

Particularly check that [code:1]authmodulelist="authvchkpw"[/code:1]

hello :)

hmm I think you mentioned courier-authdaemon before you edit your post, or am I wrong? :?

In any case, courier-authdaemon is a much better alternative to poppassd, I suggest you use it instead.

authdaemonrc is courier-authdaemon's settings file, it's path might varie, depending on how the package was configured. Generally it should be on /etc somewhere, but try searching the whole /

[code:1]find / -name authdaemonrc [/code:1]

About vpoppassd, can you please mention what software you use as your IMAP server? Are you sure it authenticates using the same source for accounts that the poppassd modifies (system accounts from /etc/ςhadow)?

cheers
