Right.  I did notice my IP's don't have PTR records.  I've sent a
request to my ISP to give them PTRs.

On a related note, how does the defaultdomain config variable interact
with virtual domains?  I get the impression from the docs that cyrus
should append the default domain to logins without a domain part.  It
doesn't seem to on 2.2.2.

Hmm.  I'm using 2.1.17 (Simon Matter's RPM).  Like I said in a previous
email the saslauthd test program doesn't seem to split the userid on the
@.  But then it probably isn't useing sasl_checkpass (which is what
seems to be doing the split).

Is there a specific cvs tag you could recommend or should I just pull
out HEAD?  Is there more danger of getting a broken build from CVS?  How
stable is the HEAD branch?
