QPopper won't read command line

Hello:

I am trying to modify qpopper so that it logs the successful logins in order to use pop-before-smtp for outside relaying. Unforotunately I can't get it to read the command line args. I put them in the server_args param of the qpopper xinetd.d dir.

Any ideas?

Current setup:
service pop3
{
        disable         = no
        flags           = REUSE
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        user            = root
        server          = /usr/sbin/popper
        server_args     = -R -log-login
        instances       = 50
        per_source      = 10
        log_on_failure  += USERID
}


Thank you.

I changed the config to this:


# qpopper POP3 server

service pop3
{
        disable         = no
        flags           = REUSE
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        user            = root
        server          = /usr/sbin/popper
        server_args     = qpopper -f /etc/qpopper.conf
        instances       = 50
        per_source      = 10
        log_on_failure  += USERID
}

And the config file is this:

set log-login = false
set tracefile=/etc/qpopper.log
set reverse-lookup=false


Now I am getting a new message in the logs. But it just says true, nothing else.

Hi,

 To find out who (and how often), you need to tell qpopper to log statistics.  
--- man qpopper --
       The  -s  flag turns on statistics logging using syslog(8)
       At the end of each popper session, the following  informa­
       tion is logged: username, number of messages deleted, num­
       ber of bytes deleted, number of message  left  on  server,
       number of bytes left on server.
------

> server_args     = qpopper -f /etc/qpopper.conf
server_args     = qpopper -s

Regards,

Wesly
