No, it is not, unless somebody writes the necessary code that - remembers count failed logins - resets this count to zero when a successful login appears - better remembers the time of last failed login too, so a + two times I failed yesterday and gave up + one time I had a typo in my password today (after I finally remembered it) does not necessarily count as three fails and locks the account. So ... Florian: if you like and need this feature: UTSL, go ahead and improve vpopmail ... The community will thank you :-) -- Best regards Peter Palmreuther Small change can often be found under seat cushions.
