Thanks Tony. Now I understood.
So I conclude that Matt was mistaken when he told
that chkuser could do smtp-authentication. Is that right Matt?

vpopmail ships with an auth patch in the
contrib directory. That chkuser version was adapted to that patch.
And I'm not sure, but I guess
that this patch is Dr Erwin's auth patch(the one shipped in vpopmail's
contrib directory) but with adaptations to be compatible to
netqmail-1.05_auth-0.4.2_chkuser-2.0.8.patch has been adapted to be applied
after the auth patch in vpopmail's contrib.
But I could not find any
documentation about what exactly
- The release.tar package contains some .patch files, ready for
installation, trying to simplify the most frequent situations.
- You may use one of these patches if you have these sources:
- a clean qmail 1.03 or netqmail 1.05
- qmail 1.03 or netqmail 1.05 patched with auth-0.4.2 (distributed with
vpopmail within the contrib dir, author Erwin Hoffmann - www.fehcom.de)
- qmail 1.03 or netqmail 1.05 patched with toaster-0.6-1 (author Bill
Shupp - see www.shupp.org/toaster for more info or newer releases)
If someone out there knows,
tell me please.
Thanks in advance,
I don't think he meant it
would replace a smtp-auth solution ( I saw the message as well). I use
the smtp auth patch included in the contrib directory though I cannot
comment on how well it works with chkuser as I run a smtp-auth daemon
seperate on another port and let my PIX restrict who has access to
