mailconf: virtual email domain and MD5 passwords

The module was change to crypt new password using MD5 instead of the old (less secure/robust) UNIX crypt. No change were need in vpop3d itself. The glibc crypt function supports both the old and new MD5 format.

From now on, when a user, or administrator set a password, it will be crypt-ed using MD5 (the same format found in /etc/shadow). Older crypt-ed password will still work.

vimap was not tested. Please check it all. Since vpop3d did not need any change, things should be fine ... :-)

This change provides better password crypt. The previous format was only using the first 8 characters of the password. Also you can move accounts from the main domain to vdomain without reentering the passwords.
