I know I sent an email yesterday but I am going to compile both into one
email and hopefully someone will be able to help me because I am so close to
getting my mail server up and running I can taste it.
I got my problem with Qmail not sending email to the proper mailbox fixed.
When I configured Qmail I followed the Life With Qmail installation
instructions to the word. What I forgot when telling qmail where to deliver
the mail was I used ./Maildir instead of ./Maildir/, when I changed this
mail started delivering with no problems. :) My bad
Now I can receive mail with no problems, but when trying to send mail I get
the error that the email address is not in my rcpthosts. I belive this has
to do with the authentication module for Qmail.
I see that /var/vpopmail/etc/open-smtp is writing IP addresses to the file
to allow me to send mail through the server. But Qmail is not reading this
My qmail-smtpd run script is as follows:
QMAILDUID=`id -u qmaild`
NOFILESGID=`id -g qmaild`
LOCAL=`head -1 /var/qmail/control/me`
if [ -z "$QMAILDUID" -o -z "$NOFILESGID" -o -z "$MAXSMTPD" -o -z "$LOCAL" ];
echo QMAILDUID, NOFILESGID, MAXSMTPD, or LOCAL is unset in
exec /usr/local/bin/softlimit -m 2000000 \
/usr/local/bin/tcpserver -v -R -l "$LOCAL" -x /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb -c
-u "$QMAILDUID" -g "$NOFILESGID" 0 smtp /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd
And I can say that my open-smtp file is not being erased by the cron job
that I setup. I am not sure if this file is supposed to be cleared or not.
If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate them as I said I am so
close that I can taste the mail server :)
I would really not like to have to recompile the qmail program with a patch
but I will if I have to if there is an easy script that will integrate with
my current system.
