Queue Management with Qmail

Brand new ar­ti­cle, just fin­ished writ­ing it.

This ar­ti­cle de­scribes the queue sys­tem of qmail, and the tools you can use to man­age it. Al­so, it in­tro­duces a new one, called qmail-­clean­er, to find mes­sages in the queue that match a giv­en reg­u­lar ex­pres­sion.


Since KRecipes seems to be using QSQLite without much trouble, it seems the nice guys who adopted it have fixed it enough to work.

So, I just sent a pro­pos­al to kde-­core-de­v­el to in­clude it some­where vis­i­ble, and thus en­cour­age peo­ple to use DBs in their app­s. Let's see how it turns out.

New PyDS

I had up­dat­ed to PyDS 0.5.2 and won­dered why I saw no change... well, it turns out one has to up­date the tem­plates in ~/.PyD­S, of course.

Now, I will try to do that and then port back the changes I had made.

The russian comments

I un­der­stand them now :-)

Ap­par­ent­ly, the poster wants to use au­then­ti­ca­tion on Squid against a LDAP server, and use LDAP groups to de­cide whether the us­er is al­lowed or de­nied.

Ap­par­ent­ly, there is no way to do that with Squid it­self. But it sounds like a sim­ple thing to do us­ing an ex­ter­nal pro­gram.

Who knows, I may write it, too ;-)

Oth­er com­ments showed con­cern about this pass­ing clear­t­ext pass­word­s. That is true. Sim­ple mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the scripts should pre­vent the POP3 or IMAP ac­cess from do­ing that, but I know no way to make Squid use an en­crypt­ed link for the au­then­ti­ca­tion (At least not with­out us­ing Squid v3).
