Yes, you're right. That's the problem with every single text "database"
that uses a colon to separate fields. qmailadmin simply sees that line
as a line that doesn't have the right number of fields. (The same
problem occurs with vpopmail installations that don't have clear text
passwords enabled at all.)
Dear Inter7 developers: What about quoting a colon as "\:"? Yes, that
would need coordinated changes both in vpopmail and qmailadmin, but the
current behaviour is confusing.
I'll look into correcting this in 5.3.17, which is almost done.
