Hi,
I've set up a qmail server with vpopmail and vchkpw authentication on a Gentoo box. When I try to send mail through the smtp server from a remote host, I have to authenticate 3 times before I come through. My /var/log/messages files looks like this during the authentications:


May 12 15:57:15 jupiter vpopmail[15822]: vchkpw-smtp: password fail [EMAIL PROTECTED]:82.182.88.166
May 12 15:57:23 jupiter vpopmail[15824]: vchkpw-smtp: password fail [EMAIL PROTECTED]:82.182.88.166
May 12 15:57:31 jupiter vpopmail[15826]: vchkpw-smtp: password fail [EMAIL PROTECTED]:82.182.88.166
May 12 15:57:36 jupiter vpopmail[15828]: vchkpw-smtp: (PLAIN) login success [EMAIL PROTECTED]:82.182.88.166


I have a ssl certificate (servercert.pem) in the qmail control directory, and according to the instructions on the Gentoo web site (http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/qmail-howto.xml), I would be able to authenticate with ssl/tls. But the log says plain...

What can cause these passwords fails (yes, I type the correct passwords), and how do I get a ssl connection?

TIA
Nikodemus
