QMail Setup Help!!! Noob!!!


Ok, I followed lifewithqmail.org's directions for installing qmail. It's up and running, however, I'm not exactly sure how to configure it. The webserver itself is always connected to remotely. I have to @ names that I want to use. Lets say for example....

@number.com
@letter.com

I put those both in the rcpthosts and local files (is that correct?)

Now, I need to add users. I once saw where people added a file to the users directory and named it say BOB. Inside the file BOB contained something like headon@excite.com. Consequently, all mail sent to BOB@number.com was forwarded to headon@excite.com. I will have multiple users for each domain (@number.com and @letter.com), so how do i go about adding them.

Also, I have relaying off, and didn't add any virtual domains, is that how i should have it.

Also, earlier in the walkthrough, it mentions adding aliases for postmaster, mailer-daemon, and root. In the walkthrough, it used the user dave, however, i don't have users on my box besides root, should i do this but just change the username dave...to root?

echo dave > /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-root
echo dave > /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-postmaster
ln -s .qmail-postmaster /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-mailer-daemon
chmod 644 /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-root /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-postmaster

Thanks for helping me out guys, because I really am a
