The DEFAULT entry matches any user for which there is no specific entry.

In that example its a check item.

There are a number of ways to do this, probably the best is:

Use DefaultReply in your AuthBy clause. This will add reply items for people
who do not have any reply items in your users file. So you can set up your
"normal" users in teh users file without any reply items, and DefaultReply will
add reply items for them. Users who have specific reply items in the users file
wil get those reply itmes and not the ones in DefaultReply.

Hope that helps.
