How to add smtp-auth to a qmail vpopmail server


Valued Member
I had some help, and used this to finish the installation / setup of the previously mentioned patch:

Tutorial: SMTP Authentication

I learned how to hand edit some files that didn't work with the patch because the patch was expecting things to be different. This was largely due to a previously installed patch that already edited these files (chkuser 2.0) Things ended up work in the end. It really only took a couple of hours to do the initial patch, figure out what didn't, fix it by hand, test, re-compile, install, test (figure out we still had to update a run script) and test again.

Happily this all appears to have worked correctly and unlike when I did it a few months ago using QMailRocks, its not an open relay this time.

yay ....
