You better run:
Code:
netstat -tanpl|grep 25
to see what is listening on port 25.

If you're an inexperienced mail admin and you don't need qmail I would highly recommend a different mail package (postfix, sendmail, exim).

Diagnostics of qmail problems is not very newbie friendly and unless you are moving many millions of messages a day the speed difference between any of them is negligible on modern hardware.

I wish someone would just update qmail itself instead of having to deal with all the hacked up patched versions where you never know what exactly has been done.
