I've seen this topic come up over and over again so
I finally decided to contribute to the thread...
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
well, are you sure there isn't anything else in the
qmail log ?? If You only see starting delivery but
nothing else then the only answer I can come up with
is that vdelivermail has never returned.
Qmail needs the vdelivermail exit code before it can
take the appropriate action.
If this is the
a simple solution is just configure vpopmail
to connect to a HOSTNAME (even if localhost).
then the only thing you need to do is add a
line to your /etc/hosts or modify your DNS
To let vpopmail read a config file is nothing
Original Message -
Let's say recompiling vpopmail takes 5 minutes.
5 min * 60 sec/min = 300 sec
300 sec / .02 sec/delivery = 15000 deliveries
on a hi-traffic mailserver 15000 deliveries
is maybe less than an HOUR
So, if you do not know where Your SQL is in one hour
then you propably need to
Hi Andrew !!
I guess You did not read the whole story :-)
It's not about shutting down deliveries.
It's not even about compiling vpopmail...
It's a comparison of having a vpopmail SQL configfile
vs. compiled in SQL config (vmysql.h)
Please read the story, I'm tired... bye...
Is this happening all the time ??
No matter what client or account ???
I have seen this behavior couple of times
and the reason was always the same.
A malformatted message that hangs outlook and also
It seems like client did not understood the message
was already completely
If You add all these domains as aliasdomains then
then all existing accounts in the original domain will
get their messages, not the catch-all. Maybe it's good enough
but if I understood your question You want ALL mail to these
domains redirected to a SINGLE account.
then do this:
I think this is a very bad idea and I'm not sure
if it even possible.
How can vpopmail interact with qmail if it runs as a deamon
process ?? The whole idea of qmail is very simple and
almost everything goes into a pipeline. This gives an easy
way to write own modules/filters which can be added
If you dislike NFS, then why did you go with qmail to begin with?
That was the target for qmail. To use NFS without file locking.
I hope this never reaches djb since I'm 100% sure he never
thougth qmail to be designed for Network Failure System... :-)
Subject: Re: [vchkpw] *.domain
how do you like add in vpopmail?
if i want to get the mail for all the subdomains of a domain
There is no such option in vpopmail.
...but you can set it up manually creating a wildcarded
one solution could be to use doublebounceto
and write a program to take care of mails, parsing
them and trying to find out what to do with it.
And finally dump it to domain postmaster or the
mailer-deamon or /dev/null depending on what it is...
Just a thought, have never tested, not even done

What is the difference? Which is prefered ?
It makes the file descriptor that qmail-local hands to
