Title: RE: [vchkpw] Smtp Auth with VPopmail

Ok. I am getting closer to having smtp auth working with qmail and vpopmail.  I patched qmail with the qmail-smtpd-auth-0.4.2 at http://www.fehcom.de/qmail/smtpauth.html.  I upgraded to vpopmail 5.4.0, which has the vchkpw.c patch included.  I have qmail setup in inetd as so:

smtp stream tcp nowait qmaild /var/qmail/bin/tcp-env tcp-env /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd /opt/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /bin/true

When I try to send a message using Outlook Express to the server, I get this type of logging in syslog:

Feb 12 00:29:44 cssimsp0 vpopmail[17667]: [ID 997931 mail.notice] vchkpw-smtp: vpopmail user not found [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

It says it can't find the user.  Any ideas why it can't find that user.  I know that user is setup with that domain(aurum-email.net).

I appreciate the help since I am under a tight deadline.

I'm not sure how you'd set it up in inetd.conf.  Most people set it up
as a service with tcpserver (see Bill Shupp's excellent toaster guide
at <http://www.shupp.org/> for an example).

At the very least, you would need to include "/bin/true" as a final
parameter to vchkpw.  I don't know if you'd need other changes.
