[Vmail-discuss] pop before smtp question

I have an hack on an older tpop3d  server, to update a timestamp field in my
mysql DB ( i have stored the emailadresses in mysql)
and then i tested with exim if the sending emailadress hat fetched mail
during the last 15 minutes .   But this hack isnt the real best one, because
u can only send mails with mailadresses who have a pop3 box, AND if someone
knows your mailadress, he can send also during this 15 minutes timewindow
( there is no IP - limitation).
In the newest tpop3d server there seems to be a posibility to get the IP of
the caller, so at the momenten im trying to change tpop3d so that it is
saving  the IP  in the database ( in the authentication functions there is a
new calling value implemented, const char *host /* unused */, so im trying
to work with this one).
Then with exim i can look into db if the IP has fetched mail during the last
10 minutes or so.
