qmail problem


Hi Dear all

i have installed and configured Qmail Server along with pop3d package as per instructions given in "Life with Qmail" the first problem is that when qmail starts up, qmail-smtpd service takes a long time to start i mean if i use qmailctl stat command, when all the servicies are on around 40-50 sec then smtpd starts counting from 1 sec.

The second problem when i am using Evaluation for mailing it does not authenticate my users and says that could not get proper greeting from pop server,, i am not able to send or receive messeges.

By processing netstat -a | grep smtp (or pop) i find that both the services are working.

any suggessions...

Regards.

Harinder Singh

Check your setup against http://www.qmailrocks.org
This is what I used to setup qmail when I was first learning it & found it to be excellent. I first tried Life with Qmail but found qmailrocks to be much easier to follow. In particular check your /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-smtpd/run against qmailrocks' one.

If you restart qmail with qmailctl restart does qmail-smtpd still take longer than the others to start?

As for "Evaluation" (which I think you really mean "Evolution") not being able to get a proper greeting from your pop server, try the "mail" command on the same box that qmail is running on & see if that gets thru to a users mail box. Do this by :
Code:
mail user@your.mail.server
Some text
.
The dot ends the text input to the body of the email, then when it asks "Cc:" just hit enter then have a look in the users .Maildir directory & see if the message is there. If it is then the problem is probably with Evolution.

Have you tried sending & receiving mail from a different PC running windows?
