you're more apt to find them on a phpbb mailing list rather than the

I just didn't want to get into explaining what vpopmail/qmail was if it
was a completely ridiculous idea.
also, a suggestion- i don't know whether your stuff works by running
"vchkpw" or by somehow calling the libvpopmail functions
Two things... I actually just directly query the mysql backend that
vpopmail uses with the phpbb authentication scripts. And, having typed
that last line out loud, I see that this is fairly off-topic AND that I
probably should have used vpopmaild! Thank you. I can't believe I didn't
stumble onto that when I was trying to hatch up a solution.
from the technical end, yes. however, i'll be honest- i suspect most
of the people here also read bugtraq and know how often new security
holes are found in phpbb, and therefore aren't overly interested in
running phpbb on our servers.
Indeed... the phpbb is on another server so the 'most' that [c|sh]ould
be compromised is that web server's chroot and the table for that
Thanks again for the input,
