No ... I mean Debian systems with QMail installed as the Primary MTA.  I
don't want a big flame war, so put the torches down.

I'm just as frustrated as everyone else at the poor/non-existent licensing
with QMail.

This list will discuss USING QMail with Debian.  I am NOT trying to
convince the world that QMail is the end all to MTA's, and should be
installed as default on ALL systems, or even Debian systems.  I am just
trying to create a forum where people can share ideas so that Debian can
have the BEST QMail integration possible with the limited licensing

'Nuff said.
