Okay, Jos is just starting up administering e-mail services. One server,
79 users max ;)
If you look at http://www.bsdstats.org/countries.php, item #16, you will
see what I mean. All those servers reported there are installed/managed
by me, and mail-wise, none of them has less than 100 users, each with
some weird requirement.
So, a database-driven setup still makes alot of sense to me, even for 79
SQL>update users set pop3 = '0' where username = 'jos at domain.tld';
That is faster than
restart daemon (perhaps)
With that single sql query, all servers contacting the DB for data
(directly or by replication) will already be aware of the restriction I've
put on pop3 service to user jos.
Over to you, Jos.
