Hi Eduardo, Thanks for your reply!
In fact we are not using smtp-auth on this server. Anyway, the load problem was solved after we adjusted a few MySQL and file system parameters. The basic idea was to compensate for the extra number of database hits resulting from the use of valias.

The only way using vchkpw to make qmail spawn a qmail-smtpd process against MySQL databases is the modified script to make qmail-smtpd spawn it first using vchkpw. btw: I speak portuguese too.
