Yepp...! That's what I figured out yesterday night... All the time I thought,
for any reason, that smtp-auth controls every incoming mail and blocks every
mail without a vpopmail account, while rcpthosts must be open... but it
actually let's vpopmail-users send mail to remote clients, while the sending
possibility is actually blocked by the rcpthosts-file... I feel quite ashame
for having the solution so obviously in front of me without seeing it... But
thanx to all of you... Now everything works fine! (Receiving email did't work
because I had the domains in my locals-file)
