i have RH6.2 using INETD. i already installed Qmail. the domain is in the
/var/qmail/control/locals /var/qmail/rcpthosts but i'm having problem
configuring vpopmail-5.2.1 on the INSTALL file after instruction number 11,
12 thank you very much.
11. Information details hiding
Alot of the underlying qmail details are not covered in this
file. This is on purpose. If you want to find out the internal
workings of vchkpw and qmail look into /var/qmail/control files
and /var/qmail/users/assign file.
12. How to use vchkpw with qmail-pop3d server
Here is a sample startup line for qmail-pop3d and vchkpw
env - PATH="/var/qmail/bin:/usr/local/bin" \
tcpserver -H -R 0 pop-3 \
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup your.domain.com \
/home-dir-of-vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d Maildir
If you want to authenticate against /etc/passwd do not use the -u -g
options, since it would need to run as root.
Notice where the vchkpw program goes.
Some sites use pop3 instead of pop-3. /etc/services has the
master list. grep pop /etc/services to find out.
If you want to use inetd style startup use this:
pop3 stream tcp nowait root \
qmail-popup mail.stilen.com \
If you want to use xinetd style use this:
disable = no
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = root
server = /var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup
server_args = foo.bar.com /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw
log_type = FILE /var/log/xinetd.log
log_on_success = HOST
log_on_failure = HOST RECORD
13. 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. Instead, tcpserver looks directly
into the vpopmail mysql table of IP's.
14. Good luck
