Default Debian Etch Courier POP3 won't authenticate

I followed the How-To on Debian Etch / Postfix / mysql authentication, and I can send but not receive, I get this error in the log file:

Jun 14 12:19:53 mail1 courierpop3login: LOGIN FAILED, user=cameron@mydomainname.com, ip=[::ffff:72.130.152.161]
Jun 14 12:19:58 mail1 courierpop3login: Disconnected, ip=[::ffff:72.130.152.161]
Jun 14 12:20:03 mail1 courierpop3login: Connection, ip=[::ffff:209.242.153.18]

the output on netstat -tap is:

Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0 localhost:10024 *:* LISTEN 15714/amavisd (mast

tcp6 0 0 *:www *:* LISTEN 2406/apache2
tcp6 0 0 *:ssh *:* LISTEN 1047/sshd

but I get no other errors anywhere, I can send mail, my mail client finds the courier pop3 server okay, so I don't think it's firewall (I checked) or mysql db, my authmysqlrc shows:

MYSQL_SERVER localhost
MYSQL_USERNAME mail_admin
MYSQL_PASSWORD the_right_password
MYSQL_PORT 0
MYSQL_DATABASE mail
MYSQL_USER_TABLE users
MYSQL_CRYPT_PWFIELD password
#MYSQL_CLEAR_PWFIELD password
MYSQL_UID_FIELD 5000
MYSQL_GID_FIELD 5000
MYSQL_LOGIN_FIELD email
MYSQL_HOME_FIELD "/home/vmail"
MYSQL_MAILDIR_FIELD CONCAT(SUBSTRING_INDEX(email,'@',-1),'/',SUBSTRING_INDEX(email,'@',1),'/')
#MYSQL_NAME_FIELD
MYSQL_QUOTA_FIELD quota

Where else should I be looking, there's no apparent errors in auth.log

Thanks,
