Install vpopmail (Source)

Note : Vpopmail is currently under active development. At the time of this writing, version 5.4.32 is the latest.
Vpopmail must be configured, compiled, and installed as root.
First we create the user and group for vpopmail.
rootshell> groupadd -g 89 vchkpw
rootshell> useradd -u 89 -g vchkpw vpopmail
rootshell> tar zxvf /path/to/vpopmail-5.4.32.tar.gz
rootshell> cd vpopmail-5.4.32
rootshell> ./configure --enable-logging=v --enable-clear-passwd --enable-auth-module=mysql --enable-auth-logging --enable-sql-logging --disable-passwd --enable-valias --disable-mysql-limits
The configuration options above are defined as follows :
--enable-logging=OPT
Log to syslog: n=nothing, e=errors only (default), y=all attempts, p=errors with passwords, v=verbose (all attempts, with passwords).
--enable-clear-passwd
Store a cleartext version of the password in addition to the encrypted version.
--enable-auth-module=MOD
Nominate how to store the vpopmail account information (cdb (default), mysql, pgsql, ldap, oracle, sybase, or activedir).
--enable-auth-logging
Record time and ip of last auth attempt. Valid only for CDB, MySQL, PGSQL, LDAP, ActiveDir.
--enable-sql-logging
Enable authentication logging to MySQL/Postgres.
--disable-passwd

--enable-valias

--disable-mysql-limits

rootshell> make
rootshell> make install-strip
Vpopmail installation is now complete. There is still a bit of configuration to be done. See the below configuration section for more information.
