Ah.  Well, I admit I'm less familiar with setting qmail up to play nice
with MUAs.  In fact I must make a guilty confession: I'm still making
qmail deliver to mbox format until I can figure out how to get Sylpheed
to grok Maildirs.  I haven't used Mutt or KMail yet, either.

I'm not sure it could do it on the fly... but pretty darn close, yeah :)

Glad I can help.

And you're right, Life with Qmail is probably the best qmail tutorial on
the net.  (When I first set up qmail, I went solely on djb's docs --
*ouch*!  It took like a week to even begin to figure it out.)  I didn't
mean to imply that LwQ is lacking FreeBSD information, just that if
you're going to run qmail under FreeBSD, it's good to keep abreast to
FreeBSD developments that affect MTAs... because unlike qmail, FreeBSD
changes regularly :)
