Part 8 - Qmailadmin
Qmailadmin is going to provide us with a nice web based interface for
administering mail accounts once they are setup through Vpopmail (or
Vqadmin). From Qmailadmin we can create mailboxes, aliases, fowards,
mail robots, mailing lists. You'll also find a few other handy
functions as well. Qmailadmin is sort of the icing on the Qmail cake.
Let's install it...

tar zxvf qmailadmin-1.2.9.tar.gz
./configure --enable-cgibindir=/home/local/cgi-bin --enable-htmldir=/home/local
note: The paths in the above configure script will need to be custom
tailored to your systems configuration
&& make install-strip
That's it! Now browse to http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/qmailadmin
and you should see the login screen. Login with the postmaster account
and password for the domain that you created a while back using
Vqadmin. Pretty cool, isn't it? Go ahead and create some additional
mailboxes for your domain(s).
If you didn't get any errors, Qmailadmin should be all set!
note: if it's late and you're looking for a place to stop so you can
sleep, this is a good place. Sendmail should still be handling mail on
the server. After this page it's Qmail or bust!
