Since I implemented the patch chkuser  and smtp-auth on qmail 1.3 I have
rights problems. 

If I keep the default setting of my vpopmail: 
-rwx--x--x 1 vpopmail vchkpw  73K juin  6  2006 vchkpw
All works except smtp-auth 

and when I put: 
-rws--s--x 1 vpopmail vchkpw  76K juin  6  2006 vchkpw
So is the pop-before-smtp that can not add more IP to my
/home/vpopmail/etc/ open-smtp

On the net I found this setting: 
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root     root    76K juin  6  2006 vchkpw
He looks well functioned but I fear for the safety of vchkpw as root: root? 

and that seems setting to work so is to change qmail-smtpd: 
-r-sr-sr-x 1 qmaild nofiles 126K mai  6 14:44 /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd
-r-xr-xr-x 1 qmaild nofiles 126K mai  6 14:44 /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd
But I wonder if it will not break anything else? 

In addition to these changes with some email arrives in my box with a big
Depending on what I SMTP using (smtp.free.fr, smtp.gmail.com, or other smtp
servers) without any error log or refuse log ... 

So in summary, is that the act of placing vchkpw as root: root is dangerous?
and is it that I can pass-qmail-smtpd in 555 without anything broken? 

Thanks !
