Hello List again,
How do I need to chmod /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw to use it the right way with
qmail smtp-auth-patched? Any other vpopmail-things i need to take care of in
this case? Is there way to tell smtp to control every incoming mail with the
vchkpw? How does tcp.smtp.cdb needs to look like and how do I do it?
I'm getting more and more desperate on this thing...
Hoping for help
