I had the same problem for about three months. I finally made the mods that I had seen in the archives for vpopmail to remove the authdamon and my problem went away. I am using vpopmail 5.3.9 qmail 1.03 and courier 1.5.3 I do not run the authdamon's at all.
that was the only way I could get it to work. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Taylor Dondich" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Monday, November 25, 2002 1:28 PM Subject: Re: [vchkpw] courier-imap tends to stop authenticating after awhile > Okay, update to my problem.
