Projects / vmailmgr


Vmailmgr provides a virtualizing password-checking interface to qmail-pop3d, a delivery agent to automatically deliver mail within a virtual domain, and a set of tools to manage such a domain. It also has Courier IMAP support. It uses one uid per domain, and this user can fully administer the domain without needing suid access rights. Making it work is as easy as adding a line in qmail's virtualdomains file, and running a few commands.

            now 4 years without updates...
            ok, it still run great (after patching to be able to compile the software on "modern" systems), but some more activity would be great... There are so many interesting things in the TODO file :-)

            Is a great tool...
            ... but no updates the last 2 years :-(

            A new version would be very welcome, especially with the
            current gcc 3.2 compatibility problems, etc.
