Yes. I found this only a few seconds after I pressed send. Sometimes
I think the break I take to go find the list, sign up, and send the
questions along is exactly the right amount of time it takes for my
subconscious to figure out the answers.

Yes, fabulous common sense. Unfortunately, I am in a position where
one of my system users needs to get her mail through her shell. I
did seem to manage to get the boxes all set up great following Paul
Gregg's how-to, however the checkpasswd code refused to compile on my
OpenBSD system. It was then that I discovered vpopmail and figured
that it would be my salvation. Seems to be, except for this one
I have tried doing similar things in users/assign as I did in that
case, but that didn't seem to work... I will keep plugging away - I
am pretty sure I am close to having it work out okay.

Just wondering if it was as easy as setting up a .qmail file ....
vpopmail doens't seem to need them for each user. Or if there was a
different way with vpopmail....
I am trying get a deeper understanding of how qmail + vpopmail work
together. I am reasonably familiar with the smtp and pop3 rfc's,
but not setup a unix mail server from scratch before now.
I read Dave Sill's book a couple of weeks back and began re-reading it
an hour ago, but it doesn't have any mention of vpopmail. And I am
enjoying being back on this part of the learning curve.
Thanks again fro the help.
