If you get the qmail tar ball, it should come with everything you need (and
probably more) expect for tcpservers. You can run qmail without tcpservers
though inetd, but I would personally recommend switching over to tcpservers
when you put it in a productive envoriment (just for the fact that inetd
gets slammed pretty hard if your running both pop and smtp from it on mail
server). If you got a decent proc inetd should be able to handle a 100
Maybe you should just look first setting up the "minium requirements" of the
mail servers. For example, if users don't need aliases right now, just work
on getting the accounts working and play with the bells and whistles onces
everything else is working properly. If they don't need virtual domains,
just work with getting other "required" funcation of the mail server. Then
once it is setup you can explore other feartures like mailing lists.
