The original qmail-queue file (as compiled by qmail-src) is an ELF binary,
was never a script. I replaced it with a cheap hack of a script to
squeeze spamassassin into the mix, then pass it along the Dr Bernstein way
of doing SMTP.
Why qmail? Because I didn't want to run sendmail while on Red Hat, so I
picked the #2 MTA on the market. And other than the cheap qmail-queue
hack, it is compliant:apt-get install ucspi-tcp
apt-get install qmail-src
I'll take a look at exim. Thanks for the tip :)
