Hi! I have a really strange problem with vpopmail and smtp. I'm using qmail and vpopmail together and for pop3 and imap4 it works perfectly. However, with SMTP AUTH it did work well for some time but doesn't do so any more. As I didn't realize the problem at once, I actually can't say what exactly has changed on the system since it worked last. I'm running Gentoo Linux and there was at least one "emerge -u world" since it worked. I'm using Qmail+vpopmail+MySQL.
So here's what happens: My client gives me an error but there's no error message from the server. If I look into the log files I find two interesting lines. Jul 14 12:23:27 myserver vpopmail: vchkpw-smtp: vpopmail user not found [EMAIL PROTECTED]:18.104.22.168 Jul 14 12:23:27 myserver vpopmail: vchkpw: can't write MySQL logs I've found out that if I change the permissions of /etc/vpopmail.conf to world-readability, I don't get the second line and the message is also written to my vlog-table. I guess it's only a subsequent error which I wouldn't get if the first one wasn't there. The first error message I don't understand at all because the user is valid. The same user can fetch mail without any problems. Can anybody tell me what is happening here? Is it a problem with permissions? If yes, permissions of what file?
