Sorry if I'm still confused...on the old server, I actually had simlinks the other way around. In ~vpopmail/etc/ I had simlinks to /etc/tcp.smtp and /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb and it worked. It doesn't on the new install. I tried reversing it the way you recommended, but it still doesn't work. (chowned vpopmail all the files, although open_smtp always gets created as root owned). I assume that somehow tcpserver either sees the open_smtp file when you do this, of its contents get somehow included in the tcp.smtp file, but I'm not seeing it...how does tcpserver know about the contents of the open_smtp file?
