Yes, that's what I was referring to. The FQDN is there only for MD5-CRAM if my memory serves correct. It is not actually used in any way for authenticating the username. It's there for a challenge-response system. The fact that it's missing from your startup would be why it wouldn't work (or, work for any username/password combination in that case).

Hi Clayton, thanks for the reply. Tunc Gunergun noted that this behaviour is symptomatic of running qmail-smtpd without a hostname after it. Is that what you were thinking? But how does this effect the other vpopmail domains on that box if at all? I'll post my smtpd 'run' below (sorry for the poor formatting): --- #!/bin/sh . /usr/share/qmail/run-functions # If rblsmtpd is installed, process rbltimeout rbldomains, and antirbldomains if [ -x /usr/bin/rblsmtpd ]; then readdefault domains antirbldomains "" for domain in $domains; do rblopts="$rblopts -a $domain" done readdefault domains rbldomains "" for domain in $domains; do rblopts="$rblopts -r $domain" done readdefault timeout rbltimeout 60 if [ -n "$rblopts" ]; then rbl="/usr/bin/rblsmtpd -t $timeout $rblopts" fi fi # Start daemons. readdefault concurrency concurrencysmtpd 20 readdefault ulimitdata ulimitdata 2000000 exec \ softlimit -m $ulimitdata \ envuidgid qmaild \ tcpserver -DRUvX -c "$concurrency" -l "`head -1 /var/qmail/control/me`" \ -x /etc/tcpcontrol/smtp.cdb 0 smtp \ fixcrio $rbl qmail-smtpd /usr/local/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /bin/true --- Thanks again for the reply, Bill
