Trying to set up our mail server here using : RH6.1, Qmail, most recent diald.
However I have run into a tiny problem: Any time any of my Win95 machines send mail to it to be relayed outwards, qmail accesses
Diald and dials out. Whats more, it dials out and connects before the mail is accepted for delivery by qmail. This is obviously
not a good thing. So:
- I dont want to use serialmail
- I want qmail to deliver mail direct, (not via our ISP) and only when it is online
I had a couple of Ideas:
- restrict the qmail users so they cant use diald (but I cant figure if its possible)
- Bring up qmail-remote only when a ppp connection is brought up.
Someone must have come accross this before when dealing with qmail and limited connections.
Look forward to the response
