I'm considering changing to qmail, but I am a bit nervous about the
mailing lists. Using mailman, I have to set some stuff up in the aliases
db. I'm finding little documentation on doing this, so any qmail giants
out there; some help please.
Here is what is in my /etc/mail/aliases for sendmail:
lvlug: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post lvlug"
lvlug-admin: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner lvlug"
lvlug-request: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd lvlug"
How would I translate this to qmail? The only thing I have seen so far
from the qmail faq is:
|preline /home/mailman/mail/wrapper post listname
So would it be
lvlug: |preline /home/mailman/mail/wrapper post lvlug
lvlug-admin: |preline /home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner lvlug
lvlug-request: |preline /home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd lvlug
should I just use fastforward?
I have qmail setup on my workstation and it seems to be doing just great.
I ran fastforward to setup the aliases file from the mail server to see
what it would look like and it looks completely different than what I
would set up on my own going by the docmentation I have seen for qmail
aliases. Then again, this is configuring qmail to use fastforward and
/etc/aliases along with the default qmail aliases file which would be from
