Cannot login with vm-pop3d: User 'admin' - failed auth, from=127.0.0.1Last Modified: Aug 22, 2008, 1:36 am
If you see:

User 'admin' - failed auth, from=127.0.0.1

in your /var/log/messages file, then you may have a newer setup for pam.  Edit your /etc/pam.d/vm-pop3d file.  Change:

#%PAM-1.0
auth       required    /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow
account    required    /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so

To:

#%PAM-1.0
auth       required    /lib/security/pam_unix.so shadow
account    required    /lib/security/pam_unix.so



A report for 64-bit systems, the vm-pop3d file should be

#%PAM-1.0
auth required /lib64/security/pam_unix.so shadow
account required /lib64/security/pam_unix.so



Note that it's recommended to upgrade to dovecot either way.
