> Now, I can add another user specifying the realm with -u as so the user is user2 at and SMTP auth works like a charm, however, when I do this, I can no longer login with POP nor IMAP.  This poses a problem.
> I suppose one workaround is to have two username for each user one at the shortdomain realm and one at the FQDN realm..... This seams like a faulty workaround, and I bet there is a better way to make the two play nice with each other.
