Configuring qmail to Use

Chapter 5. Configuring qmail to Use

5.1. Changing Your Tcp Rules

Once everything is installed, configured, and successfully tested, configure qmail to utilize Qmail-Scanner and ClamAV. If you have followed the instructions found in Dave Sills Life With qmail (see Appendix A: Reading Resources), you should have a tcp.smtp file in your /etc directory. You must edit tcp.smtp file to include the QMAILQUEUE variable.

#vi /etc/tcp.smtp


As you can see, we use qmail-queue for all local deliveries by setting the QMAILQUEUE variable to be the original qmail-queue. We then changed the local subnet mail deliveries to use This causes all local subnet SMTP traffic to be scanned by Qmail-Scanner and ClamAV. The last line of this file scans all inbound emails.

After adding the QMAILQUEUE variables, you must rebuild the cdb file for Qmail.

#qmailctl cdb
