I finally got this problem fixed. Somehow the courier-authlib service was
trying to authenticate to a database, rather than using pam. I edited
the /etc/courier/authlib/authdaemonrc file, and changed the line
authmodulelist="authuserdb authpam authshadow authmysql authcustom authpipe"
authmodulelist="authpam authshadow authcustom authpipe"
then restarted the courier-authlib service. POP3 authentication is working
