THX again for your big amount of info
i 've looket at mine /etc/rc.d/init/qmail(i use redhat)

and it is just a script with a PATH and a case for starting and stopping qmail
must i append the lines(bur don't i put them in /var/qmail/rc)question 4

and why using procmail if qmail delivers the mail itself

i have the feeling i'am way over my head here
because the situation is now i can sent mail but not to users on the local system but only to me
(used it as test) but i can't find anything to read it

you really know your linux

I'm using Qmail since some time now, and it's really great
It's even easy to install, if you follow the steps described at http://lifewithqmail.org .

ok, I believe the package manager of qmail on debian has just moved the /var/qmail/rc file to /etc/init.d/qmail to be coherent with the debian policies.

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
to koningshoed
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)

to mara
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

which mail client to use or doesn't matter

thx again for your response

I had a similar problem. I solved it by changing permission to Maildir file.

well, delivery su's to whichever user it is delivering for, Maildir should be owned by user and permissions should be drwx------, otherwize mail can be stolen .

read the pine manpage - I use mutt .

But try to export MAILDIR in any case by doing

export MAILDIR=~/Maildir

before starting up pine - it might just work. If it doesn't, also try unsetting MAIL ("unset MAIL").

koningshoed,
pleasure

jetfreggel, in qmail documentation it's written what to do to read mail from maildir using different mail client. Pine's mentioned, too.
