We have many recalcitrant, bad, accounts constantly checking IMAP, long
after the student has graduated. I would like to use user_deny.db to
simply tell them to go away.
First, would this offer an advantage? That is, does "login" check
user_deny.db before authenticating, or after?
Second, any examples of how to use cyr_dbtool (or other tool) to put
entries into user_deny.db?
Finally, my reading of the documentation (2.4.17/18) is that
user_deny.db is a flat file by default, so I will need to set
userdeny_db to something like skiplist, or berkeley, etc. Any
suggestions on a good choice assuming the list could grow to a few
thousand? Any documentation on the sql option?
