This is a reference page. See the how-to page for the step-by-step instructions.
qmail-smtpd-conf acct logacct D ip
qmail-smtpd-conf creates a service directory D that runs qmail-smtpd under tcpserver. The name D must start with a slash and must not contain any special characters. Normally D is /var/qmail/service/smtpd.
You can run the service under svscan by creating a symbolic link in the svscan directory:
ln -s D /service
The service will start within five seconds, and will be restarted upon reboot. You can use svc to control the service.
qmail-smtpd-conf arranges for tcpserver to listen for TCP connections on port 25 of ip. ip is optional; if it is not supplied, qmail-smtpd-conf arranges for tcpserver to listen on all local IP addresses. It sets up D/tcp in tcprules format to control access to qmail-smtpd; initially all access is allowed. It also sets up D/Makefile to compile tcp into tcp.cdb for tcpserver.
qmail-smtpd-conf arranges for tcpserver and qmail-smtpd to run under the uid and gid of acct. The name acct must not contain any special characters. Normally acct is qmaild.
qmail-smtpd-conf creates an automatically rotated log directory in D/log/main. The logs are owned by logacct. The corresponding multilog processes run under the uid and gid of logacct. The name logacct must not contain any special characters. Normally logacct is qmaill.
