Now, I'd like to do some kind of SMTP authetication using the idea of
SMTPafterPOP, to use the vpopmail users (into
vpasswd file) to authenticate the sending of emails.
I found some patches for QMail, but I'm doubt about the functionality of
its with vpopmail users database.
I work in a school and there are other units of it that uses internet
providers with dinamic IPs. Then, all the time I need to
change /etc/tcp.smtp to add the actual IP address for the list of
external users to do SMTP relay. But I think if I will have
SMTP authentication, I may do a QMail OPEN RELAY and all will work fine.
Is this TRUE or I'm CRAZY to think
about OPEN RELAY? Is there some alternatives to do this without OPEN RELAY?
Use tonix's qmail-smtp/vpopmail auth patch.
Smtp authentication is the cleanest way to go.
But, with it, I will configure /etc/tcp.smtp for 0.0.0. => OPEN RELAY?
