Please, before anyone simply responds with switch to dovecot, I have reasons
to stick with courier at this time despite the performance gains that I
might receive from switching to dovecot. I have a setup which uses the
shared folder setup on courier and I don't believe the shared folder support
in dovecot is mature enough for our needs based on the documentation.
That being said, is anyone using or has used the authmysql module for
courier-auth to authenticate against the vpopmail data. Obviously, we have
vpopmail storing its data in MySql already or we wouldn't be trying this. It
seems possible and with some custom programing it looks like we could get
all the disable flags passed correctly to courier. Just wondering if anyone
had any experience, positive or negative, and if anyone knew of any other
issues that might arise by going this route. Any features that are being
used in the authvchkpw module that I would need to replicate somehow? Is
this a plausible alternative to waiting for someone to maybe pickup the
continued development of the authvchkpw module?
Any insight would be helpful, and again, I am aware the dovecot may be a
better option, but at this time I am not able to consider that as an option.
