Good choice, though I prefer Sendmail because I know it better and
therefore, it's easier to configure. I attempted Qmail once and was quickly
overwhelmed and dismayed at all the new entries in my passwd file. I
decided to stick with Sendmail. But, there is plenty of help for Qmail,
starting with the document, Life With Qmail, which can be found through

Just export the addresses to a flat text file, one address per line, then
make that file your listname in ~/majordomo-n.nn.n/lists.

Majordomo doesn't handle that part of the system. Qmail will, however, give
you that information, especially if it allows usage of tools like mailq -v
which shows the current queue, including descriptive messages indicating
success or failure.
