Good to know- thanks for the correction.
no, no cdb rebuilding at all. this is with the patches to do so of course. my vpopmail tcp.smtp.cdb file hasn't been touched in just over three years.
I suppose so, but benchmarks are all specific to any setup as well. Didn't know there were patches to do this (to qmail-smtpd or to tcpserver)? I guess the big question is why add that dependency? Why have all that database activity and connection requirement when you could just pass a password along... But then you can see from previous messages that I promote the smtp-auth these days
of course, i have lots more mysql transactions going on all the time, but have had no performance problems associated with it.
