Try downloading http://pyon.org/fujiwara/qmail-1.03-v6-20021006.diff and then running:

patch < /path/to/qmail-1.03-v6-20021006.diff

See if it works before reconfiguring, but you might need to reconfigure and compile qmail if it doesn't work.

I don't think it matters...it should detect where qmail is.

When you installed qmail, you probably extracted the qmail tar.gz files somewhere on your system. For example, I usually put all my source code in /usr/local/src. Once you put it here, you should leave it forever. This way, you can apply patches much easier in the future.

When you download the patch file, you probably need to put it in the same directory as the rest of your source when you run the patch command. If it returns any weird or unexpected output, it probably means the patch failed. In which case you probably need to apply the patch manually.

Once you've applied the patch, just run...

make setup check

and that should do it. You probably want to restart qmail just for good measure.
