Re: Replacing sendmail with qmail on OpenBSD?

I am not going to agree with you on this one, kind of. If you are setting up
a box that is going to be dedicated to qmail and/or the djbdns world I would
use the daemontools as well as the other recomended software he developed.

The way I would go about it is to install a clean Openbsd system. Go ahead and
edit /etc/rc.conf and get rid of inetd and all other services you are not going
to use. Install the needed packages from the ports tree. Keep it simple.  

I would go as far as to remove any unused files (i.e. ftpd) to ensure
that as the box gets older you will have less things cluttering up the drives.

But they are at least honest enough to say so.
