[ Thanks to Invalid for this link. ]

"Qmail is a replacement for sendmail. If you have tried to install qmail before, you know how yucky that INSTALL file is, do this, read this, then this etc... Well this guide is none of that. Let's get on with it!"

"First things first, grab the qmail source from ftp://ftp.id.wustl.edu/pub/qmail/qmail-1.03.tar.gz. Qmail can be installed from anywhere, I just like using /usr/local/src/ for all my programs source."

"Now we extract it, tar xzvf qmail-1.03.tar.gz then cd into the new qmail-1.03 directory. Now as root, we make the /var/qmail directory, (mkdir /var/qmail)."
