Urdu CBT Linux System Administration qmail – 2/7

It explains how you can configure qmail SMTP server (written by Dan Bernstein), with all the bells and whistles, using steps outlined by the creator of qmailrocks.com website (now de-functional). The qmailrocks guide was somewhat in-sufficient in explaining how qmail actually works. It just spoon-feeds you the steps to do (copy/paste). I was learning qmail myself when I created these CBTs, so there are areas in this CBT which are weak. I don’t recommend this CBT to be used to setup a production qmail server. It has only been uploaded for archiving reason. If you really want to learn qmail, the best sources are “Life with Qmail” and John Simpson’s “http://qmail.jms1.net/” .
