I dont use MySQL, Ken

well, I delayed a little bit to answer beacause I taught I had solved it... but I was wrong n I am still worried about..

the vchkpw continues eating my CPU.

in the hope someone helps me, I think I figured out somethings.
1 - my ps output when the was busy:
root 171 0.0 0.0 1276 296 ? S Oct31 0:00 \_ supervise qmail-pop3d
root 22995 0.0 0.0 1844 648 ? S Nov01 0:00 | \_ /usr/local/bin/tcpserver -v -H -R 0 pop3 /usr/local/qmail/bin/qmail-popup /usr/local/vpopmai
root 17710 0.0 0.0 1276 288 ? S Nov04 0:00 | \_ /usr/local/qmail/bin/qmail-popup /usr/local/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /usr/local/qmail/bin/qma
root 17711 0.0 0.0 1600 536 ? D Nov04 0:00 | \_ /usr/local/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /usr/local/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d Maildir
root 17712 99.8 0.0 1600 536 ? R Nov04 744:49 | \_ /usr/local/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /usr/local/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d Maildir

as u can see, (if the asc art let u see:) the overloaded process is child of another vchkpw process, not of my qmail-popup, called from /service/qmail-pop3d/run script.
Is it normal? wouldn't be a qmail-popup child? As long as I know, my run script is working fine...

2 - I made a script to catch both last log lines and ps output when server gets a hungry vchkpw process. the scripts output:

Nov 4 20:06:20 server vpopmail[17711]: vchkpw: login success [EMAIL PROTECTED]:
root 17712 98.9 0.0 1600 536 ? R 20:06 2:40 /usr/local/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /usr/local/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d Maildir

The the user ip address is external, from an ISP. At this time, the user was at home and is exacly the same time the server become busy.
There is a problem related to some configuration file, perhaps my tcp.smtp file?
My tcp.smtp file has just tree lines: my external network, the internal one and the localhost.

some guru wants help a poor and lost soul? :)

Its all running fine, but sometimes the server stops authenticating. The
top shows a vchkpw process consuming more then 90% CPU and I get a
*server busy* on client.
