Re: Installing Qmail on Fedora



The user and group need to be the same as the uid and gid entered in the
database for each user.

I set up a new user called qmailusers in group users and then use the
uid/gid for this user in the database for every mail account.

See http://qmail-sql.digibel.be/install.html - the section on testing.
