NAME
       vmailmgr	- a package to manage virtual mailboxes	and aliases

DESCRIPTION
       This document describes the vmailmgr package which contains, among
       other things, a virtualizing password checking interface	for
       qmail-pop3d.  It	is intended as a drop-in replacement for the standard
       checkpassword utility with several significant enhancements.

       One of the goals	of building this package was to	provide	a usable
       virtual mail interface that was efficient and as	fully integrated into
       qmail as	possible.  This	means that this	package	attempts to use	the
       same control files that qmail uses to determine if a user is logging in
       via a virtual host.  It also implies that all programs should be
       compiled	for two	reasons:

       1.      Compiled	code will be more efficient than code executed by an
	       interpreter, such as perl or java

       2.      There is	no need	for an interpreter to reside on	the system
	       once the	code is	compiled, eliminating concerns that such an
	       interpreter could be used as an exploit in itself.
