I'm running qmail and made a virtual domain and some virtual pop3 accounts with vpopmail. I was running
qpopper and that worked for normal unix accounts, but the virtual
accounts failed: "-ERR authorization failed". So I thought, well,
maybe qpopper can't authenticate the virtual accounts. So be it. I'm
using... well... trying to use qmail-pop3d now... but with
qmail-pop3d, neither my unix accounts, nor my virtual accounts work...
#telnet localhost 110
Trying 126.96.36.199 ...
Connected to test.com.
Escape character is `^]`.
+OK <<EMAIL: PROTECTED>>
-ERR authorization failed
And the connection is closed...
I always get the "-ERR authorization failed" errormessage...
My pop3 line in /etc/inetd.conf is:
pop3 stream tcp nowait root
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup qmail-popup compsec.be /var/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d Maildir
I'm using shadowed passwords, but since I used vchkpw in the past, I
know it can authenticate unix accounts... the virtual accounts made by
vpopmail are also shadowed, so I don't get the problem... its an authentification problem for sure...
If you have any idea what the cause could be, please feel free to
