Part 7- Maildrop

Maildrop is a mail filtering agent which can be used to filter messages as they arrive on the server. You will probably notice, once this installation in complete, that you don't really use maildrop. However, it's a cool tool and it's worth having around if you ever decide to get crazy with filtering your imcoming mail. You can find documentation on maildrop right here.

Let's install it...

cd /downloads/qmailrocks

tar zxvf maildrop-1.6.3.tar.gz

cd maildrop-1.6.3

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --exec-prefix=/usr/local --enable-maildrop-uid=root --enable-maildrop-gid=vchkpw --enable-maildirquota

make && make install-strip && make install-man

If you didn't get any errors, maildrop should be all set!
