- If your queue gets larger than about 23,000 separate messages you'll need to change conf-split and recompile. Different Unix filesystems will affect that 23,000 figure, but not by more than a factor of two. This will ruin your queue, however. The best way to make this change is to run two copies of qmail like this:
stop qmail. rename /var/qmail to /var/qmail2. change conf-qmail to /var/qmail2. make setup. change conf-split to a prime number which reflects your requirements. change conf-qmail back to /var/qmail make setup. restart qmail run /var/qmail2/rc. In a week you'll be deleting this copy, so don't worry about setting it up under daemontools.
- Russ Nelson discards doublebounces without queuing them with his doublebounce-trim patch.
- Pawel Foremski has a qmail-smtpd plugin system.
- Nikola Vladov has devised a way to link qmail against djbdns's resolver library.
