You told you have to create a .qmail file on the 1st server for every account that is configured on the 2nd server. Isn't it "per user configuration" too?

But what happens when a user of the second server send an email to a user of the first server? the seconds server would bounce an error message "this account doesn't exist" if it is not configured to forward the e-mails for unexistent accounts for the fisrt server. > > I think this configuration isn't scalable.

This was too interesting. Can you write this with more detail? I never used vpopmail integrated with MySQL, and I don't master databases or SQL. What program would check the mysql database to discover where the maildir is installed? If qmail-ldap already addresses this problem, do you believe it is worth to reimplement this using an mysql database? Wouldn't it be "reinventing the wheel"? Regards, bruno.
