Avoid this book,
By A Customer
This review is from: Running Qmail (Professional) (Paperback)
This book is of little use to anyone considering installing qmail.
The information about qmail itself is little more than is included with qmail and a lot less than is available from the qmail website.
The other information, which comprises a significant fraction of the book, is background about MUAs and MTAs that any competent unix admin would know anyway. Since every version of unix ships with a working sendmail these days and only an ISP would need to consider switching from sendmail to qmail, this is needless filler material designed to add pages and increase the price.
I bought Running Qmail in the days when everyone was waiting for Dave Sill's Qmail Handbook to appear and immediately regretted it. Dave Sill's on-line "My Life with Qmail" is far more use than this book, so I will be buying the Qmail Handbook and relegating Running Qmail to the circular filing cabinet.
