[tpop3d-discuss] Authentication Failed

Thank you very much for the advise on building 1.4.2!!  That worked
great and tpop3d is now authenticating correctly.

However, the query is set to bsd rather than maildir.  Thus, tpop3d is
not seeing the 5 or 6 messages in the mail box.  Is there a command I
can put in the conf file to force maildir over bsd?  Do I need to use
auth-mysql-pass-query and setup my own query and pass maildir instead of

This time I issued the following when I ran configure:

CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/include/mysql CFLAGS=-I/usr/include/mysql
LDFLAGS=-L/usr/lib ./configure --enable-auth-mysql --enable-mbox-maildir
--disable-auth-pam --disable-mbox-bsd

I think the version in CVS was broken when you downloaded
it. You can try what's there now, or, probably better,
download 1.4.2 and run configure like this:

    CPPFLAGS=-I/path/to/mysql/headers CFLAGS=-I/path/to/mysql/headers
LDFLAGS=-L/path/to/mysql/libs ./configure ...

Note that the version in CVS is *certainly* unsupported,
even more so than the prereleases.
