Hi Zeno, First let me say there's no need to drop me a copy of your answer to my e-mail-address directly. I'm reading the list, therefore answering on list is sufficient.

How 's your POP3 started? What's the complete invocation command that makes use of vchkpw for authentication? > strace -f -s 512 -o /tmp/clearopensmtp.strace /usr/sbin/clearopensmtp Seems 'clearopensmtp' hangs in function 'tcprules_open()' in vpopmail.c, line 1939. Why? I dunno. As you stated you're using still 4.9.9-1 I'd suggest you remove vpopmail-bin from debian pool and compile at least a 5.2.1 from http://www.inter7.com/vpopmail, if not even a 5.3.8 from same site but devel page. The latter I'd call quite stable so there shouldn't be to much risk left. If the problem persists with newer version we'll probably be able to hunt down the culprit, at least much easier than me or anybody else installing a 4.9.9 with Debian specs and do the debugging job for you (albeit I'm running Debian [Woody] too I don't want to step back, it's not worth the trouble as the older version is quite outdated). -- Pit
