Should have knowm hey Drewy, after all postmix does nothing but copy
sendmail ;).. only thing it does that sendmail does not is use Maildir,
but since there is no clear mess-free setup for virtual domains like qmail
has with vpopmail, we stick to Qmail for those setups, mind you, some have
sendmail front ends (means we dont have to spend all day patching qmail

This is why we use Qmail in virtual domain it does it with ease, one thing
tho, we dont use database to auth pop3 users we use CDB file, it has far
far far superior performance then databases, and many large users report
the same results, it has been found a cluster of DB of 6 servers is
required to match the same performance with say 6K concurrent accesses,
but we do use databases for user prefs and user addressbooks etc.
Let Novell know what you think of their back door deal with the devil.
