	Humm.. serialmail is Maildir -> SMTP. Why would you want that?
	It would mean installing qmail, and messages go through it's
	queue and then to Maildir which is just a queue for serialmail. 
	Only way I see is if you are going to inject messages into the
	Maildir yourself.

	You might as well go with qmail and not install smtpd.
