   But the result is the same:

tsuki:/var/qmail/supervise/qmail-smtpd# telnet localhost 25
auth login

454 oops, unable to write pipe and I can't auth (#4.3.0)
Just an FYI to the original poster, the new patch does not require the
host name in the run file of qmail-smtpd.  If it is there, it will make
you an open relay.  It's not part of the problem above I believe but I
thought you should be made aware of it.

actually, this is incorrect.

the OLD patch required the hostname, and if it was absent, you were an open relay.

The new patch does not require the hostname, and if present, authentication will simply fail, as is the case here.

Uhh, no. Try it yourself and check the lists. Having the host name with the new patch makes you an open relay. I'll admit I'm wrong sometimes but I was listed on a whack of rbls for just this case a few years ago. Any signature will match and mail will be relayed.
