ezmlm-idx, qmailadmin, vpopmail

Any Slackers experienced with these apps? I am unable to find build scripts. Conversely, the sources seem to be easily adaptable to a slackbuild template or src2pkg --- thus not really a big deal as far as packaging.

Main story: I have been asked to help migrate a linux based mail server to a more current distro. For mail list chores the person uses ezmlm-idx, qmailadmin, and vpopmail. Primary concern is a very small office staff (mom-and-pop business). The user wants to keep using these apps to avoid retraining.

The user is open to moving to postfix but much prefers staying with the qmail base to avoid reconfiguration hassles.

Note: The person is using Mandriva 2007 and wants to update to CentOS. I am going to try to offer Slackware, but to do that I first need to know I can build and run the mentioned apps.

make install

# cron for mlmmj-maintd
mkdir -p /etc/cron.d
cat << EOF > /etc/cron.d/mlmmj
