From Fred Koschara <>
Subject Fixed:: "Relaying for virtual domains doesn't work"
Date Sun, 23 Dec 2001 20:19:50 GMT
Thank you, Neil, for the pointer, it eventually led to a 
solution:  poprelayd working with qpopper logging logins.  If anyone's 
interested in a blow-by-blow description of the hairy process, contact me 
by email.  (I *will* eventually get over the sore throat from yelling at 
micro$oft products...)

FWIW, I think I'd have had a lot less trouble if qpopper and poprelayd were 
conspicuously mentioned somewhere in the documentation - such as the README 
or INSTALL files, or on the virtual hosting page:  It seems like these are 
pretty important parts of a virtual hosting setup.

FYI, here's the sub scanaddr() I'm using (successfully) in poprelayd:

# for qpopper 4.0.3
# By Fred Koschara <>
# Based on the one by Tobias Barth <>
# Based on the one by Jan Gruber (
sub scanaddr ($) {
     my @addrs;           # avoid hangs
     my $s = $_[0];
     my $i = index ($s,'popper');
     undef @addrs;
     if ($i >= 0)
       ($s =~ /.*?popper.*?POP login.*?(\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3})/)
           && (push (@addrs,$1));
     return @addrs;
