I want to bring up a POP Server on my NetBSD machine with authorization. I
recently upgraded to version 1.3.2 of NetBSD. In the NetBSD packages I
found the Qpopper package. After installing the package, the POP Server as
such works fine, i.e, it works fine through user/pass commands. But I'm not
able to get the POP Server up with authorization.
The qpopauth command which brings up the Qpopper with authorization, does
not seem to work, when I try to either add a user on to the qpopauth
database, or try to list the database. If i try either of these things, the
command exits out saying "Segmentation Fault (core dumped)".
Even when i just type "qpopauth", it says
"Changing POP password for ..username....
Segmentation Fault (core dumped)."
and then exits out.
I'm able to initialize the database with qpopauth -init command, but I
have no idea of the contents of the database.
Could anyone please tell me what is happening. Is there anyway that I can
get this working ?? It seems to me that there is something wrong with the
package itself. If so, where can i get a package for POP Server with
authorization, i.e with either APOP or AUTH commands working.
This is a very urgent requirement for me. Any help would greatly be
Thanks in advance !!
