Patch for Qpopper 2.2 to stop "auth" command errors from MS Internet Mail Clients

Patch for Qpopper 2.2 to stop "auth" command errors from MS Internet Mail Clients

Post by David A. Titze » Fri, 06 Dec 1996 04:00:00



Hi all!

I am using a UNIX server as my POP3 Server. I noticed my syslog file was
showing an error '-ERR: Unknown command: "auth".' Compiling with -DDEBUG,
and running from inetd with "-d -t /var/adm/POPlog" I was able to see
what was going on. Internet Mail is sending "AUTH twinkie", whatever
the heck that's supposed to be. Anyway, I have a patch here for Qualcomm's
qpopper v2.2 (ftp://ftp.qualcomm.com/unix/servers/popper/qpop2.2.tar.Z) to
stop loading up the log file with errors (even if they were harmless). Note
you'll need to compile with -DMS_INTERNET_MAIL_CLIENTS or define it in
popper.h.

1. REPOST: Patch for Qpopper 2.2 to stop "auth" command errors from MS Internet Mail Clients

<<Since the initial posting, I've reasoned that the original problem
I experienced wouldn't have been noticed had I been using MS Exchange
Server. Not everybody wants to do that. But a POP client should be POP
compliant, shouldn't it?>>
