Re: configuring Qmail

Shalom,

qmail components are available with the OS.

http://www.google.com/search?q=configure+qmail+fedora&start=0&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official

The general installation procedure does not vary much from version to version of Fedora. The google search above will provide plenty of examples.

2) Advantageous comparied to sendmail?
That is a debate.
Some say its more secure.
Some say the configuration is more English language readable and obtuse.

I learned sendmail the hard way through the school of hard knocks and attempted spam relay. Its an excellent tool with quite a learning curve. Once you know it, it does nice things for you.
