Re: Qmail and Debian
umm, vpopmail first. I installed the latest version from source, and
it was seamless. I did not use a debian package to install it.
As for qmail, I attempted an install of qmail from dselect, and I had
nothing but problems. After several days of pulling my hair out, I
opted to download the qmail source from qmail.org and install from
scratch. Sure enough, it works flawlessly. Since then we've
installed ezmlm, and a slew of web-based admin tools for each. It
was only later that week that someone mentioned that the qmail .deb
packages are broken. That's why I decided to install vpopmail from
scratch as well. It takes a bit longer, but you *know* you have a
clean good install.
Hi, just a quick email to find out.
1. is the vchkpw/vpopmial package still being maintained under Debian,
doesn't look like it as vchkpw is several versions behind what is on the
2. is there still a qmail list for Debian that anyone knows about.
Have been using exim for the last 12 months or so but require a switch
to qmail and just seeing where Debian's possition on it was.
Any info greatly appreciated.
