Hi Brian,

the versions you see on my website are tailored for vpopmail, so they handle every kind of user vpopmail handles, valias and .qmail aliases, ezmlm mailing lists.

It may be easily customized for other handlers. A lot of people asked me, and they realized the same control out of vpopmail simply cutting vpopmail calls and putting specific calls. Code is very structured and easy to modify.

I use vpopmail, so, while I tried to make a general framework reausable from others, I manage and support it directly with vpopmail.

Its definitely a qmail patch, not vpopmail. You should contact
the qmail list or homepage to have it listed there instead.

I see from your page that it checks vpopmail users, but what
about regular shell accounts? Also, does it do the .qmail file
processing for normal accounts, maillists, aliases, etc. for
~user/.qmail and such? (This is obviously a basic requirement
for almost anyone to be able to use it, but I figured I'd make
sure its in there before trying it). I also assume that you're
just filling in the VRFY SMTP command, which would be correct
place to put this code.
