QPOPAUTH(8)		    System Manager's Manual		   QPOPAUTH(8)

NAME
       qpopauth	-- manipulate POP authorization	DB

SYNOPSIS
       qpopauth	[ -trace tracefile ] [ -debug ]	[ -init	[ -safe	] ]
	       [ -list [ user |	ALL ] ]	[ -delete user ]
	       [ -user user [ password ] ] [ -help ] [ -version	]

DESCRIPTION
       The qpopauth program allows POP subscribers to add or change the	secret
       values used to generate their authentication credentials, or to	verify
       the existance of	their records.

       In  addition, the super-user or master POP user can add,	delete,	or re-
       set credential data for a user, or list which records exist.  Only  the
       super-user  may	initialize the database.  qpopauth is useful only when
       the APOP	(or SCRAM) configuration option	is defined.  See  the  INSTALL
       file in the Qpopper distribution	for more information.

       Under  normal  usage,  qpopauth prompts for a new secret, just like the
       passwd program.	It then	updates	the authorization DB.

       With the	-user switch, the super-user or	master POP user	can create  or
       reset  credential  data for the specified user.	This switch allows the
       password	to be specified	on the command line, which  avoids  the	 usual
       prompts and checks.  This is mostly useful in a batch environment, such
       as in a script.

       With the	-init switch, the super-user can create	a new (or zero the ex-
       isting) authorization DB.

       With the	-list switch, the super-user or	master POP user	can verify the
       presence	of a record for	the indicated user, or	list  users  who  have
       records.	  Users	can verify the presence	of their own records with this
       switch.

       With the	-delete	switch,	the super-user or master POP user can remove a
       user entry from the authorization DB.
