Yes - having this functionality would obviate the need to maintain the
validrcptto list. Any tool that wants to check the existence of a
mailbox for a given email address on a given host would just need to
telnet to port 89 and supply a command like "exists [EMAIL PROTECTED]". An
"OK" responose would mean it does exist. It should not quite
automatically to allow the checking of several addresses in sequence, e.g:


Does vpopmaild fork? i.e. Does it allow multiple connections? I guess it
uses tcpserver to run it so tcpserver will do all the work. Cool.

I look forward to seeing a php/perl/python/whatever replacement for both
vqadmin and qmailadmin.
