Re: adduser problem and shadow passwords with qmail

I reinstalled it without any affect. Suddenly I have found the point. I have shadow passwords set, qmail with pop3 service and checkpassword 0.81 for pam patched. I got recommendation from net to change file /etc/pam.d/passwd like this:
# beggining of file
auth       required   /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow nullok
account    required   /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
password   required   /lib/security/pam_cracklib.so retry=3
password   required   /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so use_auth_ok nullok
#password   required   pam_unix.so nullok obscure min=4 max=8 md5
# the end of file

When I changed this file like this I could do pop3 connection to qmail pop3 server but I found I can not addusers and vice versa. Is it a way how to have pop3 service and adding of users working together? Thanks
