This book is exactly what it say it is, a qmail handbook.

Using this book, I was able to setup qmail and get it running without a hitch. I loved the layout of the book. Basically Sill gets right down to the task of why you bought the book- installing qmail. You can read "ahead" on the chapters and then walk through or you can simply walk through the book following the chapters and install qmail. The Appendices at the end where great. I personally suggest reading through these BEFORE you start the 1st chapter, but that is my own prefference.

The Appendices cover topics like "How qmail works", "qmail features", "Gotchas", etc. However, they are appendices so you can read them if you want to. Unlike the Sendmail bat book, where you have to wade through understanding internet mail and such, these are at the end in Sills book. It is a matter of prefference, but I would still recommend you read them (Especially the part on how qmail works!!!).

If you are new to qmail, and need to setup a server without straining you eyes on a computer screen, this is the book you need. It covers using qmail as your imap/pop server, as a external mail relay (a must for keeping your internal Exchange server secure), mailing lists, anti-spam, webmail, and many more features. This is really the only book you need if you are running qmail.

Format: Paperback
Great book! One of the few books (of the hundreds I have) that actually contains useful information. You really -can- install and run qmail with this book. Follow along closely (check your spelling and case!! (I know)). Source from the book (all of the scripts and startup file) is available at the publisher ... This book has a great explanation of -how- qmail works, information on virtual domains, web mail, and pop servers that is a practical guide, not just the usual "find it on the web and figure it out" that many other linux books seem to rely on. Some of the book is based on the 'life with qmail' documentation that the same author wrote, but with much better explanations and further examples of why you should do it 'this way' instead of 'that way'. The "LWQ" and all of the qmail source and other information is available ... The author has been most generous with his time by helping out on the qmail newsgroup alt.comp.mail.qmail. You can not go wrong having this book, a very good investment.

After a month, and hours of installing and reinstalling FreeBSD and Qmail, I finally got the mail server working right! This was my first attempt at a mail server which I use for my family members and a few friends. There are a few errors in the book in some of the scripts which did cause me many problems. That was a pain. But, even at that, I don't think I would have been able to get Qmail running without this book. It is a great book for a person like me who is always doing something a bit over my head.

I had 2 days to get a proper Unix-style mail system up and running at work-- even though I had never done anything in Linux past clicking next-next-next in a Red Hat install. This book not only made it easy to install and administer qmail, it actually made me a fan of the qmail software. I've never worked with anything that made so much sense. I am a Windows programmer.

I just finished setting up a mail server at home and this book really made it simple. I'm not a novice, so I can't speak to it's ease of use, but the steps were simple, and a bit verbose and repetitive, but overall the book was invaluable.
I also needed DNS and BIND to get everything working just the way I wanted, so I'd buy them both.

David Sill is the author of the online resource, life with qmail. This book delves a little deeper, with enough additional information that I highly recommend this book. Anyone with little or no experience with a unix MTA, will greatly appreciate this book - it will make your life and installation a breeze. This is the qmail bible.
