qmail delivery question


I have a small network at home (for business) with mixed linux and windows hosts. My RH8.0 box acts as an internet gateway and connects to my ISP via dial-up ISDN. I recently installed qmail which works perfectly for local mail exchange across the lan. I intended to use serialmail to deliver remote messages to my ISP's smtp server. However I noticed that serialmail requires all messages to be delivered to a Maildir which it interacts with and delivers to the ISP. However (if I've read it correctly) local messages will also be injected into the same Maildir instead of the local users Maildir.

I am fairly new to the Linux environment, but having alot of fun with it. I know there are many windows base solutions that can handle local and remote mail delivery/collection. I really don't want to got the windows route.

Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
