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