Using an NFS mount works just fine, but is really only practical if you're going to have the same machine handle email as well - not just web. Assuming, like Thibault said, you want to open up your entire userbase to a web vulnerability.

If qmailadmin were re-written to use vpopmaild, I think it might be a good move.


Quoting Thibault Richard <>:


I think the only way is to make a NFS mount (but it's a really bad idea to implement it in production)

Hello everyone,
I have a qmail server running and for some reasons qmailadmin does not
install, I have rebuild a new qmail server and the qmailadmin works
fine same version of OS pretty much same configuration but does not
want to listen about having qmailadmin running. So is there a way to
use the new qmail server and run the qmailadmin from there to access
the production qmail server?


I don't think it's possible. qmailadmin reads the local qmail files to find the virtual domains. Not to mention, that you need to access the filesystem to create/delete users directories.
