Are there any drawbacks to replacing vdelivermail with maildrop? I need to implement a complete package consisting of:
1) vpopmail + vqadmin + qmailadmin for mailbox/domain administration 2) maildrop for delivery (but I only really need it for filtering) 3) sqwebmail 4) qmail-scanner for virus filtering and spamassassin processing In my tests, long long ago, I ended up patching vpopmail and qmailadmin in a similar fashion as below to just put a call to shell scripts for delivery. The shell scripts used maildrop for the final delivery, and they setup environment variables for quotas. Now, it appears as though a lot of that is unnecessary (thankfully!), and I have yet to actually implement anything, so I'm trying to re-grasp the whole process. Also, are there any plans for implementing the pw_maildir field in vpopmail? I was playing with maildropmysql, and I tried putting "concat(pw_dir,'/Maildir')" for the maildir_field into maildropmysql.config, but I have yet to test it (because I haven't yet replaced vdelivermail). I dream of a future in which vdelivermail contains all the necessary maildrop filtering code..
