I have just done a fresh install of qmail and vpopmail, on Mandrake 9.1, 
following Dave Sill, http://web.infoave.net/~dsill/lwq.html for the qmail 
installation. qmail is running fine; i.e. all four daemons are running and 
inst_check reports that all is well.

I also managed to install vpopmail and add domains and users. Booth messages 
injected locally (using qmail-inject) and incomming messages via smtp (from 
KMail on another machine) duely arrive in the appropriate Maildir/new.

However, when I attempt to send to an extern email-address (from KMail) qmail 
responds with the error message: "sorry, that domain isn't in my list of 
allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1.)".

OK, the messaage is from qmail, but I think it is related to vpopmail, as I 
also have qmail (without vpopmail) running on another PC, and on with that 
machine I have no problems sending to external addresses.

I installed vpopmail as follows:
./configure --enable-file-sync=y --enable-roaming-users=y
make install-strip

and put


into /etc/tcp.smtp and added

40 * * * * /home/vpopmail/bin/clearopensmtp 2>&1 /dev/null

to crontab.

The last response to
[vchkpw] smtp;553 sorry, sorry, that domain isn't allowed relay (#5.7.1)
http://www.mail-archive.com/[EMAIL PROTECTED]/msg14771.html
suggest putting
into /etc/tcp.smtp
I have also tried that, but it didn't make any difference.

Booth the above response and the vpopmail install instructions mention 
but I can find anything about /home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp
What's the latter for?

Any ideas what's wrong?
