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).


p.s. Stop replying to all, I'm subscribed to the list already, I don't need
6 copies of the same email.

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

. /usr/share/qmail/run-functions

# If rblsmtpd is installed, process rbltimeout rbldomains, and
if [ -x /usr/bin/rblsmtpd ]; then
        readdefault domains antirbldomains ""
        for domain in $domains; do
                rblopts="$rblopts -a $domain"
        readdefault domains rbldomains ""
        for domain in $domains; do
                rblopts="$rblopts -r $domain"
        readdefault timeout rbltimeout 60
        if [ -n "$rblopts" ]; then
                rbl="/usr/bin/rblsmtpd -t $timeout $rblopts"
