Anyone have comments on the merits of qmail? Does it work well? Has anyone
dropped it in favor of something else?
Any insight is appreciated.
I haven't. I've played with Postfix some. It's nice, but it's not asQuote:> Has anyone dropped it in favor of something else?

I am running qmail 1.03 on SuSE Linux version 6.0. Mail delivery is
working fine to
a Maildir in each user's home area. My problem is that qpopper 2.53
appear to support qmail's Maildir system and qmail-popup, qmail's own
server requires a program SuSE Linux does not appear to have. The
instructions for qmail-popup are:
add to /etc/inetd.conf:
pop3 stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /var/qmail/qmail-popup
HOSTNAME checkpassword qmail-pop3d Maildir
This would mean that qmail-popup accepts the username and password from
and passes them to 'checkpassword' for authentication. I have tried
init, getty, and login
without success. I don't have 'checkpassword' and man -k pass does not
even like it.
Is there a copy of 'checkpassword' or something smilar out there that
will work with
SuSE 6.0 shadow passwords? Is it possible to configure qpopper to read
the contents of Maildir? Is there any other pop server I could use?
The command 'mailx' on SuSE 6.0 is just a symlink to /bin/mail - which
read qmail's Maildir either. Are there any replacements available
anywhere that can
I'm still not completely sure what an MUA is. Is it a Mail User Agent??
Any help at all is appreciated. I will post a precis of solutions etc
when I find them.
