Debian qmail-run


The package qmail-run sets up the Debian var-qmail installation as mail transfer agent on Debian GNU/Linux, respecting Precompiled var-qmail packages, and following Life with qmail almost completely.

qmail-run uses daemontools for starting qmail at boottime and additionally ucspi-tcp for running qmail-smtpd.

There are binary packages available for both, and a daemontools-run package that starts daemontools' svscan from /etc/inittab.

I warrant that I have made a good-faith attempt to ensure that the packages behave correctly.

Please note that the packages do not comply with the Debian Policy (Section 2.1.1 and 10.1.1), and so are not part of Debian GNU/Linux.
