Hi Trevor,

first of all, please read:

Please show us your full ./configure line.

The configure script tries to find:

1) "$vpopmaildir"/etc/tcp.smtp
2) /etc/tcp.smtp
3) /etc/tcprules.d/qmail-smtpd

As it didn't find 1), it took /etc/tcp.smtp which (I guess, but you can
check it) exists.

So you're actively _using_ /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb, why are you waiting for

Who gave you that script? It's wrong.

1) "-x" is an argument for tcpserver. You entered it as an argument for
   qmail-pop3d. Remove it.

2) "-x" expects a cdb file (tcp.smtp.cdb), not a text file (tcp.smtp).

3) qmail-pop3d doesn't need that file at all.

4) "FQDN" should have been replaced with your fully-qualified hostname.

No, you don't. What makes you think you do?

Again, don't tell us the interpretation of what you did; show us your
full ./configure line. And fix your startup scripts. After that, we can
go further.

If you're in a hurry, http://qmail.org/top.html#paidsup lists some
companies that do commercial support.
