[vchkpw] Postgres support?

2003-01-13 Thread Andrew Kohlsmith
Back in April of last year I'd asked about Postgres support in vpopmail and Bill had mentioned that it was in the development version. Has that been abandoned altogether? I didn't see it in the current stable release, and there's been a few releases between 04/02 and now. :-) Regards,

[vchkpw] not updating tcp.smtp.cdb??

2003-01-13 Thread Andrew Kohlsmith
I'm running 5.2.1 with roaming users enabled, but upon successful POP3 or IMAP4 logins the tcp.smtp.cdb file is not being updated. I've checked file permissions (going as far as to set mode 666 on both tcp.smtp and tcp.smtp.cdb) and verified that the ones I'm looking at are the ones that

Not sure if this is related, but I had a problem with courier and vipmap domains. It appears that courier was passing an IPv6 IP address and not an IPv4 ip address. That would seem to indicate that it was still trying to update the tcp.smtp[.cdb] files, but that is not the case here -- the

I think the problem has most likely to do with IMAP clients using persistent connections. When they first login successfully vpopmail updates tcp.smtp.cdb file and the user has open relay for one hour or whatever it is for timeout. But since the IMAP client uses persistant connection a new
