Thanks - will try this.

Actually my LDAP post was regarding using LDAP as authentication for another
program which only uses LDAP.  I want to try and do LDAP lookups on the SMTP
envelope on another gateway product before forwarding it to Qmail.  I am
still wanting to use maildirs (of course!).

Hi Andrew,

Well, it seems to be a silly mistake - i believe your error messages are 
going to root because your pipe is redirecting only the stdout of the first 
command, letting the stderr to the console (which is forwarded to root).

Try this:

command_a 2>&1 | command_b

And I read your posting about using a LDAP server in order to have a 
synchronized backup server. I don't know if you are aware that when you use 
the vpopmail LDAP backend only the authentication data will be 
synchronized. You'll still need to use rsync in order to copy the maildirs. 
(I'm sorry if you already know that). So maybe you wouldn't like to move to 
LDAP and keep using vpopmail.cdb backend and rsync to synchronize.
