Qmail is a secure, reliable, efficient, simple message transfer agent. It is designed for typical Internet-connected UNIX hosts. Qmail is the second most common SMTP server on the Internet, and has by far the fastest growth of any SMTP server. Qmail's straight-paper-path philosophy guarantees that a message, once accepted into the system, will never be lost. Qmail also optionally supports maildir, a new, super-reliable user mailbox format.
This book is a quick starter for people who want to set up a mail server using qmail. It also discusses advanced features, like hosting multiple domains, in detail. By bringing together material that might take days to find online it will be a real timesaver for Sysadmins.
This book gives practical examples that system administrators can use right away, but it also explains the basics behind every example clearly.
