I have the source for such a daemon. You can download it
via anonymous ftp from pub/linux/mail/poppassd.c

read the readme and you'll have the data to setup the makefile for shadow passwords.

It is an excellent answer, but... I tried to compile it and could not.
Complains about missing files and such. In the mean time, I found a perl version that do an excellent job.

Thanks, Jeffa!!
