The problem is that one of the most common qmail SMTP-AUTH patches ( http://members.elysium.pl/brush/qmail-smtpd-auth/ ) has got a bug that breaks CRAM-MD5. Here is the commend I made ( in vpopmail bug tracker 862598 ) : Looking through the changelog, I can see that CRAM-MD5 : SMTP-AUTH was added by Bill Shipp during 5.3.6, and that he : wrote the code to work with the SMTP-AUTH patch from : http://members.elysium.pl/brush/qmail-smtpd-auth/ : However according to this page : : http://www.fehcom.de/qmail/smtpauth.html, that particular : SMTP-AUTH implementatoin breaks the checkpassword : interface... But since it is the most common patch, it if we fix : the vchkpw code to make it compliant, I assume then it will : break this patch > If anyone out there can test CRAM-MD5 auth, please try applying this > patch to rc1 and reporting back whether it fixes the problem.
