amavisd-new + qmail
You are strongely recommended to read through this and this excellent howto before You start doing anything. Don't worry, a little bit of reading won't harm You.
There are two solutions (yet):
- dual MTA setup
The first one requires two qmail installations, the second only one. Preferences vary. I have had the idea of implementing QMQP into amavisd-new for more than a year untill I even try to do that. Reason? I did not think that people would need it ;). Why the sudden change? Alex Povolotsky presented a 'solution'. As I have already written in the mailing list: I MEAN NO DISRESPECT TO HIS WORK. I just DON'T like the approach. Qmail offers everything one could ever need to communicate with amavisd-new so it's easier/faster/better/nicer to patch amavisd-new than qmail. There are many more things I don't agree with but the choice is yours.
This document will try to answer all general questions about setting up qmail with amavisd-new on any operating system. If You have any comments, mail me directly, if You experience any problems or have some questions, post them to AMaViS-user mailing list (You can subscribe) and include me in Cc:, I will gladly answer.
My thanks goes to:
- D. J. Bernstein for writing all that wonderful software we (all) hate and love
- Mark Martinec for writing amavisd-new and his tireless efforts to make it even better
