Reasons NOT to use qmail.
* ugly source code
* it's another rather large and complicated thing to learn
* everyone and their mother knows a thing or two about sendmail
* qmail is incompatible with _itself_!
example: the the popmail setup is retarded .
* it seems that all of the qmail features need to be merged
into the source. it's not made very clear which of the patches
work the best, or which ones to use.
* debugging qmail is a bitch, it is silent about errors
* sendmail is relatively easy to configure if you use the m4 stuff
* sendmail does everything you would ever need.
Do yourself a favor:
Download the latest version of sendmail from ftp://ftp.sendmail.org/
Download juniper smtpd from http://www.obtuse.com
Study the docs ( Subscribe to bugtraq while you're at it )
Install the software.
Get on with your life.
I had to put my 2 cents into this. I've seen qmail recommended
many times, though i can't quite figure out why most people
would want to use the damn thing.
( I do have to say that the qmail.org homepage looks a zillion times
better now since the last time i checked =)
