Qmail Toaster Problem

Well I made an attempt at getting my server working with a qmail toaster from and it appears to be working fine, except when I go to log in, I keep getting invalid user/password, for every single combination I try.

Was wondering if anyone has used his toaster tutorial before and have been successful with it. It was recommended to me from some forum post (may have been on here), but I'm just getting hung up on this one spot.

Even the web-based administration works fine, i can add and delete users with it, but they don't seem to work.

I followed the instructions on that page word for word, letter for letter, and when it comes to the testing part, here's what I get:

[root@***** /]# /home/vpopmail/bin/vadddomain *****.us testpassword
[root@***** /]# /home/vpopmail/bin/vadduser -q 6000000000S user@*****.us testpassword
[root@***** /]# /home/vpopmail/bin/vuserinfo user@*****.us
name: user
passwd: $1$hYQb2Cs/$GYQgm/zfu4APgZO/LFVxS1
clear passwd: testpassword
comment/gecos: user
uid: 1
gid: 0
flags: 0
gecos: user
limits: No user limits set.
dir: /home/vpopmail/domains/*****.us/user
quota: 6000000000S
usage: 0%
account created: Thu Apr 14 09:36:10 2005
last auth: Never logged in
[root@***** /]# telnet localhost 110
Connected to localhost.localdomain (
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK Hello there.
user user@*****.us
+OK Password required.
pass testpassword
-ERR Login failed.
+OK Better luck next time.
Connection closed by foreign host.
[root@***** /]#

For security reasons, I've blocked out my domain name from this copy/paste, but I'm pretty sure all the DNS entries are set up correctly for the domain name I'm using:

[root@***** /]# host -t mx *****.us
*****.us mail is handled by 10 mail.*****.us.
[root@***** /]# host -t a mail.*****.us
mail.*****.us has address ***.***.***.***
[root@***** /]#

And yes I realize there may be a better place for this, but I was unable to find any kind of support forums on his site, only a mailing list and a searchable archive, neither of which has been able to solve my problem yet.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to reply!

**EDIT** Oh, and not sure if this matters, but I'm using Fedora Core 3 and kernel version 2.6.9-1.667
