Hello, I will start going through lifewithqmail.org. Would like to clear few more things: In mailserver I think the messages will be stored in var/mail/accountname (correct me if i am wrong). I have very less disk space for /var. This was not a concern with POP3 because messages get deleted from server. Now with IMAP i think i need to do something for it. Is there a way to direct mails to /usr. Does this message redirection create any problem in configuring MUA?. Thanks, Naveen.

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 just referring to how FreeBSD's MTA wrapper lets you switch > > between sendmail, qmail, and any other sendmail-compatible MTA (say, > > Postfix) without too much effort. > > Okay, I am now seeing a better appreciation of how this FBSD MTA > wrapper works, allowing one to switch MTAs almost on the fly... cool > I'm not sure it could do it on the fly... but pretty darn close, yeah :) > Thanks for your input.. 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 :) -Chris _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!?
