This is pretty much in responce to Jeffrey A Schmidt's mail called "can't relay 
any more" posted on Fri, 15 Apr 2005 17:28:34 -0700


Gentoo has once again made HUGE changes to a package without informing it's 
users thereof before allowing the package to install. 

this is from the ebuild : 

einfo "Use of vpopmail's tcp.smtp[.cdb] is also deprecated now, consider"
einfo "using net-mail/relay-ctrl instead."

incase you're wondering what this means ... 

from the install section: 

    econf \
        --disable-tcp-rules-prog --disable-tcpserver-file 
--disable-roaming-users \
        || die

    # TCPRULES for relaying is now considered obsolete, use relay-ctrl instead
--enable-tcpserver-file=/etc/tcp.smtp \
    #--enable-roaming-users=y --enable-relay-clear-minutes=60 \
    #--disable-rebuild-tcpserver-file \

They have disabled roaming users aka relaying in vpopmail. You need to emerge 
relay-ctrl instead. 
Or work around this ..
