Hi Eduardo,

my patch basically modifies qmail-smtpd.c code, using vpopmail libraries. So, it may be seen practically in the category "qmail patch", not "vpopmail patch".

As any patch, it may not work if someone applied other patches before, so I don't think it may be right to include it in vpopmail package. vpopmail configure must work 100%, and cannot rely on already patched qmail code.

No problem if someone wants to make it, or Inter7 decides to include it in vpopmail, but I see it troublesome (not because of my patch, but because all the patches that are usually applied on qmail).

All could be competely different if inter7 decides to distribute an extended qmail+vpopmail package. That could help a lot of people, and a lot of patches could be added easily.

Let me know what you think.



P.S. Actually, the installation of the patch is extremely easy, and you may install it also on patched version of qmail (a lot of people asked me and did it). If you have a plain qmail installation, the patch will work in a few minutes.
The patch has been written in a easy and compact way (with a semplified version for Bill's megapatch or other complicated patches) just to help people that use a deeply patched qmail.
