Apologies. Smack on hand accepted. Hit 'reply all' instead of just 'reply'. Didn't realise I'd done it, don't normally do it, will watch I don't do that again. How's that? ;-) > >> Are you sure the '/usr/sbin/vchkpw' resutls from > >> your compile operation? > > No, it doesn't. > Well, than why do you use it? :-) Don't ask me, ask the system! It chose to to do it, not I. Besides, you know what tends to happen if you force things sometimes .. maybe I should just get nasty and delete them? > Well ... give it a try. Replace '/usr/sbin/vchkpw' > with '/home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw' in your POP3 startup > script and report back if this solved your problem :- First thing I thought of actually, and as it happens already the case. So where the reference is, I don't really know.( I dropped tcpserver temporarily, and pasted the code into inetd.conf ) # below an entry for vpopmail pop3 stream tcp nowait root \ /var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup \ qmail-popup mail.extras.co.uk \ /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw \ /var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d \ Maildir Is it maybe catching the first entry in the $PATH?? > BTW: anybody able to tell my why this particular > version of vchkpw is linked against 'libm', 'libssl', 'libcrypto' and > 'libdl'? Good question. FYI, I used - ./configure --enable-mysql=y --enable-clear-passwd=y --enable-valias=y --enable-mysql-replication=y --enable-incdir --enable-libdir --enable-domainquotas which gives: Config result with no debian packages in .. ---------------------------------------------- vpopmail 5.2.1 Current settings --------------------------------------- vpopmail directory = /home/vpopmail uid = 89 gid = 89 ip alias = OFF --enable-ip-alias-domains=n (default) address extentions = OFF --enable-qmail-ext=n (default) roaming users = OFF --enable-roaming-users=n default user quota = OFF --enable-defaultquota=NOQUOTA default auth module = mysql --enable-mysql=y mysql replication = ON --enable-mysql-replication=y table optimization = many domains --enable-many-domains=y default system passwords = OFF --enable-passwd=n default file locking = ON --enable-file-locking=y default file sync = OFF --enable-file-sync=n default disable vdelivermail fsync auth logging = ON --enable-auth-logging=y default mysql logging = OFF --enable-mysql-logging=n default clear passwd = ON --enable-clear-passwd=y (default) valias processing = ON --enable-valias=y pop syslog = show only failure attempts --enable-logging=e default default domain = --enable-default-domain= auth inc = -I/usr/include/mysql auth lib = -Lyes -lmysqlclient -lz Cheers, Chris. __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
