An option for us to setup a different server that only handles smtp

smtp authentication to work. Or is it possible for the vpopmail to
connect to the database on the other mailserver for authentication or
would that be too slow? Does anybody have any other suggestions
I ran into this same problem. I got around it by creating a SMTP
submission port that accepts SMTP Auth emails into the server on port 587.
Port 25 only accepts messages from our spam appliance by firewall
Each mail client has to be set to use port 587 and SMTP Auth of course.
