QmailToaster Introduction

Welcome to QmailToaster. QmailToaster is designed to be very stable
and easy enough to install that even an inexperienced Linux user can
install, operate, and maintain a full blown Qmail MTA.
We encourage everyone to find ways to improve QmailToaster and then
pass this knowledge on to the rest of us via the mail list.
This wiki is maintained by Jake Vickers and Erik Espinoza to provide a
centralized location for assisting QmailToaster users.

QMailToaster History

QmailToaster was conceived by Miguel Beccari in June 2002. At the time,
Miguel was an IT for Clikka.Com in Undine Italy. Miguel's goals were to
provide a very stable rpm based Qmail MTA, and to build a "QmailToaster"
community of users to support and develope the QmailToaster project. 
Since October 2003, Nick Hemmesch, with the help of many others, has
maintained and hosted QmailToaster.
