I read this today on the qmail list.

This is not the first bad word I've heard said against vpopmail.

Would the any of the authors care to respond?

Problem is, that poeople in all 3 locations using same domain for mail

Yup, that's a problem.  Fortunately, there's a solution.  Enumerate all
the local users on each machine, and insert them into
virtualdomains like this (using example.com instead of company.com):

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:alias-forward
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:alias-forward
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:alias-forward

And then you need a ~alias/.qmail-forward file which has this:


I have no idea how to make this work with vpopmail.  I don't use
vpopmail, nor do I recommend that anybody else use it.  I've read the code
for vpopmail, and although it's written to industry standards, it's crap. 
Total and unmitigated crap.  Fixed-length buffers
everywhere, #ifdef every time you turn around, null-terminated strings
instead of counted strings, it's crap; crap, crap, crap.  I understand
that not everybody can afford a custom-crafted solution from Crynwr
Software, but sometimes you only get what you pay for in the open
source world.
