Well, the mailing list has been created and has started functioning. Please refer to the popa3d homepage for subscription instructions and archive access.

Please use direct e-mail for questions like this. If there's demand for discussing this kind of stuff between the users of popa3d in public, I am willing to create a popa3d-users mailing list for the purpose.
Your particular question isn't as simple as you might think it is. Where do you keep the mailboxes for such virtual users and how do you get mail delivered there? Mailbox locking? How do you manage such virtual users? Password file locking?
It also has more than one valid answer. There's an unofficial patch in contrib/ which does just what you asked for. There're (currently undocumented, "use at your own risk") virtual domain support hooks in popa3d-0.5+. There's NSS and PAM.
No followups on the technical issues raised here in the project comments please, that's not what I'd like them used for.
Probably not the place for this but ive been at it for two days so I apologise.
Virtual users. Password file. Me much wailing and gnashing of teeth.
How do i make this release read a specified password file, say /etc/mypasswd.passwd and not the /etc/passwd file for my virtual users.
I have tried to inlude it in configure file to no avail. Im using RH7.2 running xinetd. Is this overriding the file request?
There isn't one...Email Solar Designer if you want...
I don't think he is working on popa3d much anymore ???
