Another newbie question:

What has to be done to allow POP before SMTP relay authentication?

I have:

1) Set up mysql

2) Set up Qmail.

3) Set up VPOPmail (with the "enable roaming users" switch, mysql switch,

4) Read the VOPmail INSTALL file, and the FAQ

So far, the only combination of things that seems to partially work is:

a) Starting up tcpserver:

tcpserver -H -R -x /home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp.cdb \
-c20 -u506 -g505 0 smtp \
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd 2>&1 > /dev/null &

where 506 is "qmaild" and 505 is "nofiles"

b) Starting up qmail:

/bin/csh -cf '/var/qmail/rc &'

Current Behavior:

If I start only the tcpserver, mail is accepted by the machine, but never 
delivered locally.

If I start the tcpserver AND qmail, mail is accepted and delivered 
locally and can be successfully POPed by a virtuser account.

BUT: attempts to relay through the server after successfully POPing fail
with the 5.7.1 error message: "sorry that domain isn't in my list of
allowed rcpthosts".

I'm sure this is obvious, but sadly, not to me.

TIA for any pointers/suggestions...
