qmail as a pop server to deliver email to internal mail server


Hi I am a newbie to qmail... i have installed qmail using qmailrocks.org installation guide. qmail is running perfectly fine.

now i want to use qmail as a front end for my internal email server thats mail daemon (Mdaemon server). i want the Internal Mdaemon server should send and receive internet email through qmail server.

i want to configure qmail so all the internet emails should be dropped under one email account (may be pop account)for example mail@mydomain.com, then using domain pop i want pull those emails on backened mdaemon mail server where all my company users email account is created.

my purpose of setting up qmail as front end is spam filtering and antivirus scanning.

can someone give me little idea about how can i do above and which are configuration files to define so that mail@myemail.com will receive all emails coming to mydomain.com.

Thanks in advance.

I can't for the life of me work out what you're trying to actually do, but pop3 (which is nothing at all to do with qmail...) isn't going to be a good choice. I think what you probably want is just to use the qmail box as a relay which will forward mail, after scanning onwards to the internal machine in SMTP all the way.

Question Facing Same Problem here.... :(


I am also suffering from same problem in Qmail server as like KAMILRANA. Though i am using Qmail from long time but in this case(like, mentioned by KAMILRANA) i am totally out of solutions. In my case i have one Qmail server hosted by my company(an ISP), one of our client running an organization wanted a VPOP mail account, by using that account he want to setup a Mdaemon mail server, created multiple virtual email account and distribute to its employee. All the mail receiving source will be the VPOP account given to him by our company.
Mdaemon server will distribute the mail individually to the employee, related with. Some time earlier I had install Sendmail and test Mdaemon server and it is working fine. But i had a huge try for Qmail which result no success. Please help me to solve the problem.
(sorry 4 my poor english)
Thanks
