I have given up on sendmail as I got too many responses telling me
problems to expect with it, so I am trying qmail with maildir now.
Anyway, I just installed qmail, and I am having problems getting pop3
with it. I installed checkpassword, and tcpserver, and I am launching
and POP3 via tcpserver. Tcpserver is in /bin as is checkpassword.
This is how I am launching it in /etc/rc:
tcpserver 0 pop3 /var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup 192.168.0.2 \
/bin/checkpassword /var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d Maildir &
tcpserver -x /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb -v -u 82 -g 1000 0 smtp
2>&1 | /var/qmail/bin/splogger smtpd 3 &
I seem to be able to send mail through the smtp gateway fine, but when I
goto check mail I just get "Enter username and password" over and over
If do the test that it says in the INSTALL for checkpass
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup host /bin/checkpassword pwd
So it seems to work there, just not through qmail-popup (like
qmail-popup is not relaying the user and pass correctly...)
Thanks in adv.
Also, I am going to move the computer to a public IP as soon as I get it
working privately here, but I won't have a domainname, until I can prove
that the box is stable and ready for migration. What do I need to do so
that it will work on IP only (ie can I just have people send mail to
with a domainname?)
