    Qmail relay problem


    I was wondering if there is a way to setup qmail to allow just me (the sys admin) to use the smtp server to send mail... its setup to not relay of course but i dont have access to a smtp server while on the road with my pda, therefor cant send any mail out... any ideas?

    the way i see it, if you're connecting on the road with your pda, then you have an isp. if you have an isp, they probably have an smtp server. and if you're using their connection they'll let you relay through it.

    all best,

    any ideas?
    Use SMTP AUTH or POP-before-SMTP.

    But I'm not sure from the docs if the POP-before-SMTP works with vpopmail....
    It shouldn't matter. With vpopmail you still authenticate with your POP3 server, just using a different checkpassword program to DJB's checkpassword. relay-ctrl doesn't care about this.
