Are you having an issue getting your smtp-auth working?

If your /service/qmail-smtpd/run script resembles this :

exec /usr/local/bin/softlimit -m 5000000 \
/usr/local/bin/tcpserver -v -R -l "$LOCAL" -x /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb -c "$MAXSMTPD" \
-u "$QMAILDUID" -g "$NOFILESGID" 0 587 recordio /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd foobarcom /usr/local/bin/checkpw-pop3 true 2>&1

Try increasing the softlimit memory limit to a higher value such as 30000000.

If this does not fix the problem please reply with your run script and with the exact error messages logged in both your qmail log files and when you telnet to the smtp port configured on your mail server.
