The logs say nothing. What I had noticed is that sending through an email
client, the messages do not appear to hit my system at all and are sent to
my mailbackup. once i switch back, the mail starts comming in from the
mailbackup as normal.
laster today i will run a tcpdump session on my FW checking to see if
anything hits me and i will also try with a email client externally and
enable logging on that.

I am not sure, I belive this was uncommended and didnt change it at all.
I am not using any TLS patches [I couldnt get them to work at the time so
i stopped trying].
I didnt think it would hurt to leave it enabled.
the patches I am using are: maildir++ and qmail-remote-auth and of course
trying to get chkuser working.
I thought it would be ok since the qmail-smtpd/run script is pulling up
qmail-smtpd as the vpopmail user and group.
should i try to uncomment this and try again?
