It's just a cleaner and nicer way of doing it.  qmail-conf sets up the run
script that way.  Functionally, there is no difference.

That is good.  It means you aren't an open relay.  If you authenticate via
POP3 first, then you should be able to send mail from that IP.

The POP-before-SMTP stuff is automatic.  That is why you use the
tcp.smtp.cdb file in the vpopmail/etc directory.  clearopensmtp is not
automatic, as the vpopmail makefile will not go adding things to crontab for
you.  I do believe that Debian vpopmail package sets this up.  However, it
just requires adding a single like to root's crontab:

40 * * * * root /path/to/vpopmail/bin/clearopensmtp > /dev/null 2>&1
