Increased the softlimit to 40000000. No luck.
How can I test vchkpw to see if it is ok, or the problem resides elsewhere? (maybe qmail-smtpd is not feeding vchkpw the username/password correctly, and thus, authentication failes)
On a second thought, the message is: vpopmail[xxxx]: vchkpw-smtp: vpopmail user not found [EMAIL PROTECTED]:ip.
Maybe, the ":ip" ending is not stripped from the username (email address), and it is trying to authenticate the whole [EMAIL PROTECTED]:ip which of course could cause this ***beep***-up.
But, as I mentioned before, Pop3 and IMAP authentication work flawlessly (courier-imap package)
