...except for some FreeBSD-specific info :) Here are some tips: 1) FreeBSD uses a "MTA wrapper" which makes your mailer *look* like sendmail, regardless of what your mailer actually is. This wrapper is located at /etc/mail/mailer.conf. Mine looks like: sendmail /var/qmail/bin/sendmail send-mail /var/qmail/bin/sendmail mailq /var/qmail/bin/qmail-qread newaliases /var/qmail/bin/newaliases This makes setting up non-sendmail mailers quite a bit easier. IIRC the PORT_NOTES file in the qmail port has more information about this. 2) Use sendmail_enable="NONE" in your rc.conf file to completely disable sendmail, once you have qmail up and running. 3) Don't worry about ucspi-tcp and daemontools to start out with - qmail will work with inetd, it will just run nicer with ucspi-tcp and daemontools. So you can migrate to those tools after you become comfortable with qmail - you don't have to do it all at once. HTH, and good luck. -Chris _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
