I run a small server currently with
qmail-1.03 + qmailadmin 1.2.8 + vpopmail 5.4.10
qmail-1.03 has the chkuser patch applied (not a recent version). Although
it did not help my problem I also just applied Christopher K. Davis qmail
patch (to qmail-smtpd only) because I hoped it would resolve a "CNAME lookup
failed temporarily" problem.
In any case I am thinking that I should probably upgrade thinking it might
solve problems I haven't even run into yet, and perhaps apply more patches
to qmail, and I wonder if anyone has any opinions about packaged
combinations of qmail+vpopmail with good sets of patches for use on a small
server that is currently FreeBSD that I would like to move to MacOSX in
several months. I see there is now a "toaster" that includes vpopmail,
which if memory serves did not exist several years ago. I'd like to get
SMTP auth in the process. So in short I'd like to upgrade to achieve better
reliability and security, and facilitate support.
I also have a custom patch to vdelivermail that I'd like to preserve, so I'm
not looking for anything based on binaries.
The above is currently running on FreeBSD (that is 3 years old or so) and
I'm hoping to move it to Mac server (although not using their included
email), and hope to have a solution that will not make such a transition
I'd also like to keep existing mail flow with all users and their qmailadmin
settings, etc., so hopefully just a recompile that will preserve existing
functionality, something I can test live in the wee hours expecting no major
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
