No. Actually, the opposite if true: In the old scheme: ... qmail-smtpd hostname pam true in case you miss to include the hostname, your MTA is acting as on open relay. In the new scheme: ... qmail-smtpd pam true if you include the hostname by mistake (as above), AUTH will fail; thats it. >i had some time to figure out why after upgrading to >vpopmail-5.4.x first the cram-md5 wasn't working and after >upgrading to netqmail-1.05 with toaster-0.6.1 the whole smtp-auth >thing wasn't working...... You should prefer reading the documentation and READMEs rather then listing to rumors. See in addition: http://www.fehcom.de/qmail/smtpauth.html There's a lot of reasoning. regards. --eh.
