    Qmail or Postfix


    I am currently working at a large government department, we are running qmail on a fedora 3 box. it is running multiple domains and serving about 200 users. Recently it has started becomming unstable etc. My suggestion was to switch to Postfix on FreeBSD. Would this be a switch for the better or worst?

    Personally I'd go for Sendmail, and bolt everything down. But then I've been running versions of sendmail for over 5 yrs, and never had problems.

    If you want to give it a go (with sendmail, postfix or whatever), then set up a test machine and see how it performs.

    Sendmail

    I might give it a go, I have a postfix test box at the moment, I am trying to store the mailboxes, usernames etc. in a mysql database (don't know if this is possible), but i'll give it all a go seeing that the weekend is comming up. Can you perhaps point me towards a good site for sendmail?

    How about www.sendmail.org? They have loads and loads of documentation on there - it's the only site I used when I configured mine.

    Thanks

    Busy loading a new BSD box to set it up, would it work just as well on FreeBSD as on say Fedora?
