Am I missing something?? > The solution is simple - use SMTP-AUTH instead of imap-before-smtp. If they can authenticate via IMAP, using SMTP-AUTH-patched qmail can also use vchkpw to authenticate against the vpopmail database. I understand the desire to make things easy for the users by letting them use imap-before-smtp, but it's really not the best way to do things these days... If you really, truely must use imap-before-smtp, use a different IMAP server.
