how does vpopmaild handle users who have spaces in their passwords?
Right now it doesn't. I'm not sure if it did before I added compact or
not. I definitely want to keep compact mode, it made a big difference
in responsiveness when I was testing.
let me suggest an alternative- instead of "login user pass compact",
how about "login/compact user pass"? this allows the password to be the
last thing on the line, and therefore contain spaces, and still allows
for a "compact" option.
What do you think about login | clogin | slogin? I was planning if you
would like a way to see if a user exists without returning anything else...
any thoughts? if needed, i will write the patch to make this happen-
let me know.
If you write it and send it to me I'll make sure it gets into 5.5. You
can choose between login/compact | clogin | login "password with spaces"
compact. I like clogin best because I'm lazy... :)
i would also like to see the output from the "help" command trim itself
to the set of commands which are actually available to the client-
before login, for example, the list would have "login", "help", and
"quit", and would not disconnect the client (as it does now.) for a
normal user it would only show the commands relating to their own
mailbox without any admin-level commands, for a domain admin it would
show the domain-level commands but not the system- admin level stuff,
and so forth. this is also a patch i am willing to write, if there is
any interest in it.
That sounds like a good idea too. If you do it, please consider making
it so help before login is allowed, and only lists the three login
commands. Then once you are logged in expand the help list based on the
user's rights. Right now help before login sends the help list and
I just got my PHP qmailadmin clone running on Bill Shupp's toaster with
vpopmaild, and I'm getting ready to look at the differences between the
stable-5.4 and 5.5. I am seriously considering making 5.5 to be exactly
the same as the latest 5.4 once Tom tells me its ready. Then I'll add
your patches there. I'm in the process of finding out just what is
different between the versions.
