i read life with qmail
and i installed qmail with maildir but my sustem was
sendmail(redhat installation) but i can't seem to send any mail
or open any mail
Make sure you've removed sendmail. Then follow instrutions on creating maildir. Remember to create maildirs for all user, not only for the one you're using when installing qmail). Also qmail logs are informative. Please send the error you get when sending/receiving mail (/var/log/mail/info in my system).
thx guys for all your input
i didn't know that about debian never worked or played with it
i shall try to change the rc with your config
(thx again for your effort to keep posting me)
i've removed sendmail but sendmail was configuered for
mailbox(standard installation redhat 7.2 i think )
for installing users use (qmail-newu or qmail-pw2u)
or running maildirmake as user
installing all users is not automatically
i shall check out those log files for any error
checked my maildir an it is what you say
but how do i set my mail clietn(pine or kmail or any other) that it looks for ~/maildir/new
because i made some tests to my own and in the log file
delivery succesfull and find a file in ~/maildir/new
tried it didn't work but i left pine for what it is in faq----->qmail pine not secure
i am looking at mutt and they talk more about maildir then in whole pine man
i gonna searh on the net more info about mutt and qmail
but thx to you for your major effort pf teachng me a bit more about linux
i tried it what i found in the docs in the faq was the only thing i could find about pine or other mail clients
sendmail-path=/usr/lib/sendmail -oem -oi -t
thx for the suggestions
