Hi all... I'm having problems with inet crapping out on the qmail-smtp

However, I'm getting complaints from people that the POP before SMTP

/usr/local/bin/tcpserver -c 200 -v -u 1009 -g 1003 0 smtp
/var/shc/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd >&1 | /var/shc/qmail/bin/splogger smtpd 3 &

Anything wrong with this, or do I need to do something else so that the POP
before SMTP authentication works correctly?


While I like ports I highly recommend you reinstall qmail using the instructions contained in Life with qmail.

I also highly recommend Dave Sill's book as well. We have run qmail for over 5 years here on multiple servers and Dave's book still sits on my desk, it is invaluable.

Follow his instructions, and any problems you are having will go away. qmail will be efficient, fast, stable, and secure.


Three years now I've asked Google why they don't have a

for other non-international holidays, but nothing for

Maybe they forgot who made that choice possible.
