Talk:Qmail, Mail toaster
no, really, the comma shouldn't be there. (or the title should be "what it is, and what we are doing here" without the question mark). I used to be a spelling and grammar nazi in a past life.
You're going to have to back that up with an external link to a well-accepted style guide that clearly states that using a comma there is wrong, and even then I don't promise to care. =) --Jimbo 20:36, 15 Dec 2004 (EST)
while not incorrect to use the comma there, it makes for bad scanning.
I'm not well up on wiki etiquette so I just thought I'd add a comment here on a small change I made.
I added two /etc/ to the following section to ensure the command will work correctly when executed outside of the /etc directory
ph34r# rehash ph34r# cat /etc/tcp.smtp | tcprules /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb /etc/tcp.smtp.tmp
Also for some reason I couldn't get make enable-qmail to execute. It was probably something I was doing wrong but should anyone run into similar difficulty just check out the file work/qmail-enable inside the qmail+smtp_auth+tls ports directory.
Its easy enough to read what it does and then execute the commands for disabling sendmail and enabling qmail manually.
P.S. Great guide, it was very helpful, Eoin
Huh - that's odd (that make qmail-enable ran into problems). Never seen that before. And your change was good, thanks. =) --Jimbo 10:59, 7 Jun 2005 (EDT)
so for giggles, i'm installing a listserv (using mailman...i'll let you know how ti works out) and I'm using FreeBSD for the hell of it. and I am also having problems doing a make enable-qmail. going into the work dir doesn't shed any light on the matter as the only thing in there is:
# ls -la total 28 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Jul 13 16:18 . drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Jul 13 16:18 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 0 Jul 13 16:18 .build_done.qmail-smtp_auth+tls-1.03.20020519_1._var_qmail -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 0 Jul 13 16:18 .configure_done.qmail-smtp_auth+tls-1.03.20020519_1._var_qmail -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 0 Jul 13 16:18 .extract_done.qmail-smtp_auth+tls-1.03.20020519_1._var_qmail -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 0 Jul 13 16:18 .patch_done.qmail-smtp_auth+tls-1.03.20020519_1._var_qmail -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 311 Jul 13 16:18 SMTP_AUTH+TLS.readme -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 2639 Jul 13 16:18 pkg-install drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 16896 Jul 13 16:18 qmail-1.03
so what does enable-qmail do (as a target to make) that just a make install doesn't?
