I'm using one domain per table. This means I need to probably translate
%d into blah_blah instead of blah.blah. An earlier list conversation
mentioned this as a possible sql injection point -- I definitely don't
want to open up a security hole!
I saw the patch to use vpopmail 5.4.30 with dovecot 2.x, I can do that,
but ideally I'd like to a) get up to vpopmail 5.5, b) stop using the
vpopmail driver and switch to the mysql one, and c) upgrade to dovecot v2.
Suggestions? Thanks for your help.
