I wouldn't have posted to this forum if I had not exhausted all other avenues of research. I may not know much about QMail, but as the operator of a data center, I do know how to leverage the Internet and fellow admin resources to find the answers I'm looking for. Typically, the suggestions I receive in forums have more to do with my poor grammar or what a lame N00B I am, rather than providing useful information. However, since I must resolve this problem quickly, I am hoping that this forum proves to be different.
Sorry about the lack of info. My server is running:
Fedora Core 2
This QMail deployment was installed entirely from a group of heavily modified RPMs from a third party vendor, whom is conveniently unavailable to help. The three utilities that are mentioned on this site all seem to require a source install, unless I am mistaken. The directions for install chkuser, spamcontrol and qmail-ldap all reference editing the source, re-compiling with calls to the respecitve scripts, and re-installing. I guess what I need to know is:
A. Is it possible to do this with an RPM install. I mean, I could get the source and slap it on my server, bu what happens when I recomplie and install over an RPM install? My guess is that I won't have to worry about SpamCop blocking my sender's mail anymore, since the server will be completely jacked.
- or -
B. Has anyone else out there ever had to do this? Maybe there is some secret RPM out there that will zap my Qmail and make it spam-cop friendly, something designed for tards like me whom have no right using a C compiler.
Thanks in advance!
