Hi Carl
Yes, all the vpopmail account information is stored in the MySQL database if you enable MySQL backend support. It totally eliminates the .cdb files

One of the benefits of this is it allows you to easily write web based tools (eg in ASP or PHP) that can talk to the database and then present easy to use interface for your support staff to manage the user accounts.
Also, you can add additional columns to the database to store other per-user information without affecting the operation of vpopmail
If you are having trouble compiling/installing vpopmail w/MySQL, I have a quick guide available online at
Maybe take a look there to see if it helps solve your install problems.
Hope that helps!

Subject: [vchkpw] Reason for MYSQL

Is MySQL used for storing user information so that we the ISP can use it for tech support , etc. I cannot compile vpopmail with mysql support.
You have a good day now,
