Subject: [vchkpw] alias support via vpopmail in PHP

> Hi all,
> We have moved to qmail / vpopmail completely and it's working very well for our 
>needs. We run a control panel written (in-house) in php which used to take care of 
>adding / deleting users before we had moved to vpopmail.
> The new mail server however works in a jailed freebsd environment and does not offer 
>direct access to commands, and in our limited environment, we don't want to offer 
>qmailadmin to our clients.
> I decided a good way to link our control panel to the new mail server using php's 
>internal vpopmail functions would be via an xml gateway. One sends authenticated 
>internal posts (via ssl) to the this gateway -- the gateway is running as vpopmail 
>and carries out the requests. The response is sent back to our control panel as an 
>xml document. This solves many issues and offers great flexibility. I finished 
>implementing the code yesterday and it's all working well.
> Enough with the background, on with the problem.
> The valias function is not support by php as the functionality is left out of 
>vpopmail itself (please correct me if I am wrong), and I the way around this, as far 
>as I can figure out, is writing a .qmail-user file in the domains/domainname.com 
>directory with the | vdelivermail line for the new email address.
> As the (xml) server is running as vpopmail, this is hardly a problem to do -- 
>however, I was curious if this would be the most sound method. What do you guys 
>think? Am I overlooking something very obvious or is writing a file manually a good 
> I appreciate your comments.
> Best regards,
