it seems that (at least with version 5.4.17) the username length with
mysql authentication has been limited to 32 characters and the domain
part to 64 characters;
vpopmail.pw_name char(32), vpopmail.pw_domain(64), valias.alias
char(32), valias.domain char(64).
The SMTP RFC allows for a local-name part of an email address to be 64
characters and domain to be 255 characters long.
Has this been addressed in later versions of vpopmail, and can it
safely be fixed by altering these table fields to have corresponding
ie. does it break something in vchkpw (or qmailadmin)?
Found some references on the list mentioning limits in vpopmail.h:
#define MAX_PW_NAME 32
#define MAX_PW_DOMAIN 64
Are these still valid and therefore require changes to the code and
recompilation in order to conform with the RFC?
