Not much of a help, just info:
I have also had the authdaemon problem on two different systems, both
In both cases I ended up recompiling sqwebmail without the authdaemon
option, which resolved the problem on both.
I have read info about several "qmail toasters", and in their examples the
authdaemon option is always disabled.
I guess it is the experience they have had...

Hmmm. OK. Then I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong as authdaemond seems to
"stop working" after a time. I've setup the rc file so that the daemon
only loads the "authvchkpw" module at start time.

When first started, all users can athenticate normally, but after an hour
or so, it seems to start randomly failing on known good uname/pw combos.
Only stopping and starting the daemon fixes this; using the restart
command has no effect.

I'm seeing this problem on two different boxes with identical installs
running RedHat 6.2 and RedHat 7.3. I'm considering doing a third build on
a Solaris box to see if the problem show up there as well.

Can anyone suggest what could cause such a problem and what a fix might

Stopping and restarting the authdaemon once an hour seems like a kluge at
best, particularly for a busy server...
