The Qmail Installation
Note: This Guide is based off of the guide on and modified by UniCav and MrJackson to bring it upto date along with some other minor changes.
Items in Pink need to be addressed, items Orange are my comments and items changed from the official guide.

As it is now, I've split the Slackware qmail installation up into 20 sections which are listed below. Simply start at step 1 and follow it all the way to completion. By the time you reach step 20, you should have a kickass qmail server. You may notice that the Slackware installation guide shares many of it's steps with the Redhat/Debian guide. This is due to the close similarity of the 2 installations. On the portions of the install that are unique to Slackware, you will be directed to a Slackware specific page.

Before You Start! - When installing Qmail, I would STRONGLY reccomend that you first conduct a test installation on a test server if you have one available. I cannot stress this enough. If you're new to Qmail, chances are you will probably screw the install up the first time through. Do yourself a favor and screw up on a test server that has no importance to you! I had to learn this the hard way. ;)
