Hi all, This might not be exactly the right mailing list for this question, but as the tricky part of the installation has previously been that of vchkpw and mysql authentication, I'll bother you guys with my situation. Sorry if it seems rather off-topic:
We're in the process of renewing one of our email servers, currently running qmail (1.03) + vpopmail (5.4.17) + vqadmin (2.3.6) + qmailadmin (1.2.11) + courier-imap (3.0.8) + mailddrop (2.0.4) + ezmlm (0.53-idx-0.41) + autorespond (2.0.2) + rblsmtpd, using mysql authentication and pop-before-smtp, qmail-scanner (2.04) for clamav, spamassassin. Any suggestions of which versions (or alternatives) to use in a production environment at this point? What kind of environment are others using for multi-site mailservers, requiring web based tools for managing the domains (=vqadmin) and email accounts (=qmailadmin), with imap/pop3 and webmail support (we're running IMP on the webmail front)? Based on what I've been reading, it seems like at least the courier-imap needs to be replaced with dovecot (which seems like a natural upgrade anyway). As I recall, the mysql authentication was rather problematic with the current setup, on the part of courier-imap at least. Will the current versions work smoothly with the authentication? Have there been any (significant) changes that would necessitate some kind of migration of the current data (as opposed to just building new versions of the software and copying existing data from the old server)? Also, any ideas if qmail supports smtp-auth out of the box these days? (so we could finally dump the pop-before-smtp) Again, sorry if this is off-topic; If someone does find time to answer me, I suppose it'd be better to do so just to my address, outside the mailing list :). ---- As for the latest development conversation, I'm all for dropping out courier-imap as they've done to vpopmail/qmail. Their support hasn't really been that good anyway, and as there are better alternatives available, even those of us still using courier in our current installations (seem to) have a valid upgrade path available out of it.
