qmail-control - qmail configuration files


You can change the behavior of the qmail system by modifying qmail's control files in /var/lib/qmail/control.

qmail can survive with just one control file, me, containing the fully-qualified name of the current host. This file is used as the default for other hostname-related control files.

Comments are allowed in badmailfrom, locals, percenthack, qmqpservers, rcpthosts, smtproutes, and virtualdomains. Trailing spaces and tabs are allowed in any control file.

The following table lists all control files other than me. See the corresponding man pages for further details.
