vpopmail's roaming-users support is poorly designed, slow, and prone to failure. relay-ctrl is not, and is even, in fact, safe to use over NFS (I've done it) > > However, I wouldn't even use pop-before-smtp..

You send your users an email telling them they have to change in their mail clients, and give them a URL with some pictures and instructions, and notify your support staff about the change, and train them how to handle the situation.. then send that email every week for 3 months. After the 3 months is up, shut pop-before-smtp off. -Jeremy -- Jeremy Kitchen ++ Systems Administrator ++ Inter7 Internet Technologies, Inc.
