I was using qmail and vpopmail for a long time with the old versions and
old auth smtp-auth patch versions, but with rc2 nothing works. With the
old smpt-auth patch 0.31 only works outlook express with the new rc2 . I
recompile qmail-1.03 with the new smtp-auth patch
http://www.fehcom.de/qmail/smtpauth.html from here and now I get always
a rcpthost error, authentification error, and any client email doesn't work,
I have this configuration
exec /usr/local/bin/softlimit -m 40000000 \
/usr/local/bin/tcpserver -v -R -l "$LOCAL" -x /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb -H -l0 -R -c "$MAXSMTPD" \
-u "$QMAILDUID" -g "$NOFILESGID" 0 smtp \
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd "$LOCAL" \
/home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /bin/true 2>&1
If you're running the latest 0.42 patch from the site you mention above, then you shouldn't have the hostname in the run file. It should just be ".../var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /bin/true 2>&1".
We will probably need to mention this in the upgrade documentation, and it could be a messy install for some people unless we can come up with an "update" patch for qmail to go from the 0.3.1 auth patch (which is what many people are using, I believe) to 0.4.2.
