Why not use Qmail II.
Just a random rant about Qmail (see my
previous text for more complete description): I have found that Qmail
uses hard-coded UIDs and GIDs, and even when the six pseudo-users and
two pseudo-groups Qmail needs are installed in the system databases
group, it still uses
its own hard-coded UIDs and GIDs. However, they provide a separate tool
/var/qmail/bin/brand, which can binary-patch the Qmail files
to use another set of UIDs/GIDs when needed. However, this breaks the
packaging system's idea of what modification times and checksums the
Qmail files have. Ugly as hell. Bleeeeh.
