thanks for reply!
is there a simple way to induce my qmail-smtpd (patched with the qmail-smtpd-auth patch from http://members.elysium.pl/brush/qmail-smtpd-auth/) to use the vpopmail mysql db as "justice".
You can use vchkpw as the password checking backend for qmail-smtpd-auth, independent of wheter MySQL is used as the storage backend or not. qmail-smtpd-auth doesn't care for it; it only presents a checkpassword-compatible interface.
Well i've tried to use vchkpw as the pw checking backend for qmail-smtpd-auth. But at the moment it's not possible to gain access to send mail trough the smtp server. The server is invoked via tcpsever, and runs under the correct user: /usr/local/bin/tcpserver -v -R -l mail.moritzi.ch -x /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb -c 20 -u 7797 -g 2109 0 smtp /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd mail.moritzi.ch /export/opt/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /bin/true
Tho logs doesn't show up with any useful informations.
Is there any possibility to check an useracount with vchkpw via the shell, just to be shure that it does what it should do? Are there any other suggestions?
Best regards Sam
