perhaps then, we are talking about different patches.  I'm referring to the 
one from Dr. Hoffman at http://fehcom.de/qmail/smtpauth.html.  I can assure 
you that Dr. Hoffman's patch is NOT an open relay if you supply the hostname.

Either that or you're thinking about the OLD patch where if you do NOT supply 
the hostname, you become an open relay.

With Dr. Hoffman's patch, if you supply the hostname, you get the behavior 
described earlier in this thread (454 oops, unable to write pipe and I can't 
auth (#4.3.0))

If you can show me a URL that contradicts this, please do, and I will stand 
corrected :)
