Thanks for the reply. Indeed, I did use the "--with-authvchkpw
--without-authdaemon" but it made no difference.
If I understand your email correctly, since I'm using courier-imap 4.1.2
it is impossible for imap authentication to update the open-smtp file??
Hence it is IMPOSSIBLE for any roaming users to send mail?? So what's
the solution (if any) - is it possible that ALL users who use
courier-imap 4++ are unable to send email and this is acceptable to
them?? Am I missing something??
Again thanks for your reply.
Best regards. Otto.
PS: Does your email imply that I need to downgrade my courier-imap down
to v3.x to allow remote users to be able to send mail??

IMAP-before-SMTP is possible when using Courier-IMAP v3.x. However it
only works when configured "--with-authvchkpw --without-authdaemon".
When running --without-authdaemon, Courier-IMAP's authvchkpw code is
able to make use of vpopmail's roaming user functions to allow
IMAP-before-SMTP functionality. IMAP-before-SMTP is not possible when
Courier-IMAP has been complied --with-authdaemon, because in this mode
the user's IP address is not made available to the authvchkpw code
(via the TCPREMOTEIP env var). Also note that in Courier-IMAP v4.x and
later, --without-authdaemon functionality is no longer available thus
preventing IMAP-before-SMTP from working.
Hope that helps!

I used Bill Schupp's Qmail Toaster to install the following:
autorespond-2.0.4 - courier-authlib-0.58 - courier-imap-4.1.2 -
netqmail-1.05 - toaster-scripts-0.8.1 - ucspi-tcp-0.88
Everything works as expected except for the fact that open-smtp is
NOT being updated by courier-imap upon login. Pop3 logins
authenticate and update the open-smtp properly. I googled and read
practically all the info on this topic, but it seems that nothing I
do will get courier-imap to update the open-smtp file!!
I did do::
./configure --with-authvchkpw --without-authdaemon
My tcp.smtp contains:
Have I missed something out? Any ideas or pointers will be welcome.
Much thanks and rgds. Otto Rodusek.
