That would keep tcpserver from reading the hash. However, vchkpw will still go about happily updating this file on every popauth even though nothing is reading it. Seems like a waste of CPU cycles to me.
Also, I WANT tcpserver to read this file so that I can use it for blocking mail from abusive hosts, etc. I just do not want vchkpw to update it on every popauth. Paul J.

Based on the documentation found on step 13 of http://www.inter7.com/vpopmail/INSTALL: -- For sites using the mysql module and --enable-roaming-users=y it is highly suggested to use Matt Simersons tcpserver-mysql patch. This removes the need for vpopmail to compile a tcp.smtp.cdb file for each pop authentication. -- I have implemented the patch, and verified that tcpserver is reading my /var/qmail/control/sql file properly (if I chmod 000 this file, tcpserver complains about it on startup). Also with --enable-roaming-users=y in vpopmail, vchkpw properly writes the authenticated IP addresses/timestamp to the vpopmail.relay table in MySQL. My problem is this: Even though it is properly writing the IPs to the vpopmail.relay table, it is also writing them into the tcp.smtp.cdb hash file. I would like it to ONLY write to MySQL and not to the .cdb. I have tried --enable-roaming-users=n, but this causes vchkpw to stop writing the IP addresses to either location. It is almost like there should be a --dont-update-tcprulesfile=true variable upon configuration. Am I missing something here? Has someone else configured vpopmail in this manner and gotten around this problem? Thanks! Regards, Paul Fries [EMAIL PROTECTED]
