Hello Hiro,

	Looks fine, and here are some minor points you might want to address first:
* debhelper compat 5 (and make changes if needed)
* you might want to use your real name rather than a nick ? ;-)
* debian/copyright should look like:

This package was debianized by ... on ... .

It was downloaded from: 

Upstream Author: Big Author <e@mail>


... QUALCOMM license text follows...

Debian packaging copyright:
    (C) Year, You < e@mail>
and is licensed under ... license.

* lintian says:

W: qpopper-drac: setuid-binary usr/bin/popauth 4755 mail/root
N:   The file is tagged SETUID. In some cases this is intentional, but in
N:   other cases this is a bug. If this is intentional, please add a
N:   lintian override to document this fact.

I think think you need setuid, thus declare that fact with a lintian override: 
=> file:/usr/share/doc/lintian/lintian.html/ch2.html#s2.4

W: qpopper-drac: maintainer-script-needs-depends-on-netbase postinst
N:   This script calls update-inetd, but the package does not depend or
N:   pre-depend on netbase, which provides it.

P.S. I hope you will find a sponsor.
