Quoting X-Istence <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>:
As i have tinkered with the source code myself, i dont see why qmail would have to be restarted. In the qmail source file, it re-reads the rcpthosts file on every run of it ( qmail-smtpd ), so "hot" adding shouldnt be a problem at all.
Don't tinker, READ!
daemon1# pwd /downloads/mail/vpopmail-5.2.1 daemon1# grep qmail-send vpopmail.c signal_process("qmail-send", SIGHUP); /* send a HUP signal to qmail-send process to reread control files */ signal_process("qmail-send", SIGHUP); signal_process("qmail-send", SIGHUP); daemon1#
Things like that has mislead me in the past, so I am quite anal when it comes to expressing opinions.
At times when I mention something I am not 100% sure of, I say "Please correct me if I am wrong", or "I could be wrong".
Also, if I don't have the big-qmail-vpop-picture, I would never make a conclusion like "[something] shouldn't be a problem, at all".
Respectfully, Tim Hasson
I have always joyfully added files to my rcpthosts and it has never failed to pick em up on the next incoming SMTP connection. Its always worked just fine, so i dont know.
