How about removing the cdb domain check for vauth?   I don't know what
all utilizes the vauth function, but I happened to notice that if a
domain does not exist in /var/qmail/control/aliases, a user cannot

To be more precise:  I have a 'user' server which also houses the
primary database.  All creation/deletion of users/domains is done on
that server.  I have another server with an NFS export, also running
IMAP, that has a copy of the required qmail files, a 5.4.17 vpopmail
install on it, and a MySQL slave.   If I create a domain on the 'user'
server, the user cannot authenticate on the IMAP server because the
domain doesn't exist in the aliases cdb file.   For my purposes, the cdb
check is unnecessary, and just another thing I have to replicate.

Is it possible to have a configure with --skip-cdb-auth - or maybe can
we put/replicate the aliases cdb into MySQL ?

Just some thoughts.  It 'feels' smoother to have everything replicated
in MySQL, instead of having scripts run or a bunch of extra NFS mounts..
