    Did you ever get this squared away? I had trouble installing it here; I followed qmailrocks.org's tutorial, but never made it through without error....No troubleshooting docs.

    Don't supervise and do not use qmailctl script unless you are absolutely sure you can start them individually by hand. Using qmailctl without testing could cause it to fill up your /var partition in a few hours.
