I'm migrating a customers qmail, vpopmail, etc from BSD to a machine running RedHat 7.3. I've got qmail and vpopmail running (as far as I can tell), but when trying to use sqwebmail, it uses authdaemond.plain to authenticate via /home/vpopmail/users/vpasswd.cdb
So with vadduser I can add a user to a domain, which is good, but only adds their username/password to /home/vpopmail/domains/_DOMAIN_/vpasswd and vpasswd.cdb. But with authdaemond.plain using /home/vpopmail/users/vpasswd.cdb, it doesn't see the changes made because they aren't written to this file.
I seriously must be missing a big chunk of the picture because I can not figure out how to make this work. Anyone, with any help would be greatly appreciated.
Have your IMAP/POP3 server (courier?) use vchkpw authentication.
Some people have problems using authdaemond so its often better to rebuild courier to use vchkpw directly instead of authdaemond. Either way vchkpw should do what you want.
