This sounds interesting. When you say "login" do you mean by ssh or
telnet, for example?
I am curious, how does the server (or login program) know which passwd
files to use?
Is this with PAM?
I am guessing, but maybe these "/etc/vmail/ users are mail-only users;
maybe they are not real Unix users (no UID), so they can't log in.
