5.0 out of 5 stars Good Book at a very good price!, 20 Nov. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Running Qmail (Professional) (Paperback)
If you are going to setup a mailserver on a unix like platform and do anything that is at all unusual a book often helps - If only because the index is usually much better than trying to search through man pages or html files.
This book has a good index, covers lots of the technical issues about running a qmail installation well and has enough background information where appropriate to prevent the reader from having to dive into other books to find out about more general requirements like DNS, mailbox formats etc. Overall it is a good book which was sorely needed and is at a good price too...
The book comes with a FreeBSD 4.0 distribution and qmail source on an enclosed CD. Despite this the text is not aimed only at the FreeBSD user but is equally good for linux since the differences between both O/S's are highlighted throughout the book where necessary. Users of other O/S's are not left completely high and dry since the explanation of the features used is usually quite good.
qmail is substantially simpler to configure than sendmail so this book had an easier brief than the "bat book" but this is much simpler, better layed out and more pleasurable to read than that reference- I had a working qmail installation in very little time at all and unlike sendmail I had a confident feeling that I knew what I was doing and that there was no smoke and mirrors involved...
It will be interesting to see how well both the book and qmail survive on my server but I am very pleased with both at present...
