You have to write a wrapper script around qmail-smtpd (called from tcpserver).

In case a client is accepted via pop-4-smtpd, the $RELAYCLIENT environment
variable is set. It might be useful to define this variable explicitely,
ie. RELAYCLIENT="PB4S". Check it and call qmail-smtpd without any arguments.

In case the variable is not set or empty, call qmail-smtpd with the proper
SMTP Auth args.

I charge $1 for each mail client.
