Actually it's not that hard to figure:

- this .cdb file is used by tcpserver
- tcpserver of POP3 process can use one too
- One can enter the same line into a different text file and make an
  appropriate .cdb file from it or tell POP3 server to use the same
  .cdb file as SMTP server; qmail-popup and qmail-pop3d will not be
  disturbed by set RELAYCLIENT or even QMAILQUEUE variables.

Somebody who deals with his own mail server I simply expect to be able
to read documentation to make it as secure as possible. When this
person got a hint I expect it to be able to carry over this knowledge
to other problems as well. That's the responsibility someone has when
he/she wants to have his/her own server. Sorry for that opinion.
Best regards

Death is God's way of telling you not to be such a wise guy.
