Yes, I created the passwd file on both proxy and destination server (same
user and pass on both)

H'mm ok. I think its working now on the proxy but when I telnet from the
proxy as the user, since it's now authenticating as the master user, it
doesn't show anything in LIST. I think I read somewhere that it's suppose to
be like that since its the master logging in... but if that's the case how
would the user get his inbox if they login as master?
