What do you think about login | clogin | slogin?
sounds good to me, as long as it's consistent and documented somewhere-
both in README.vpopmaild and in the "vpopmaild" wiki entry.
It will be.
I was planning if you would like a way to see if a user exists
without returning anything else...
that's certainly a possibility, easy enough to add... should that be
available to any client without authenticating first? or if it requires
an authenticated session, should it be available to any user, or just
the domain-admin for that domain, or only for a system- admin?
I think it should just take any user/password combination and return OK
if the user exists or ERROR, then exit. If you need to login to find
out if a user exists programs will have to have login credentials in the
script. Not a good idea.
i'll go with "clogin" and "slogin". i'm also going to look at the code
which parses the line and make sure that when it's looking for a
password, it doesn't stop on spaces.
I haven't been able to access the SourceForge CVS server for the last
two days. I think they may have changed the rules, and may have found
what I need to do in the docs... which is what I was doing when I
stopped to answer these messages.
I'll try to have this in 5.5 within a few days. I still need to see
just what is different between 5.4 and 5.5.
