The trouble with qmail is that I found different qmail versions for different Debian releases.

I am reluctant to make tests on my Ubuntu server, as I am currently using it. Maybe later.

From my experience, I believe that I have the highest chances to configure Postfix, the mail server supported by Ubuntu project. Too bad that nobody answers my thread there:

Thanks for your help.

Configuring the mail server under linux is difficult because:

1. mail servers under linux can do a lot, they can service thousands of clients over lan and in other configurations,
2. security certificates are a story of their own, and they need to work well with the mail server.

That is why to learn how to configure a mail server under linux takes weeks rather than days.

However, I managed to make postfix send mail (but I failed to make fetchmail receive mail) with this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GmailPostfixFetchmail
