Save yourself some time and frustration. Goto and follow the installation process they there. My brother-in-law did it and his works with out a hitch.

Unfortunately, I did it but can't get my POP3 to work. However I don't think it was the the qmailrocks instructions rather a current configuration on my system.

If anyone thinks they might know how to help me out, see
