Aaaarrrrggggghhhh!!! At the risk of starting a
flame-fest, do yourself a favour, ignore this
advice and stay away from qmail. The license
issue alone should make you stop and think
first. It is about as encumbered with
restrictions as it is possible to be with a
so-called "free" license.
After that, you have to start patching the
source and rebuilding everything from scratch in
order to make it actually useful. It is hideous.
No one can supply you a binary or even
pre-patched sources despite such patches having
been extensively tested and mature. Don't expect
to be able to add any kind of plug-ins either.
There are plenty of MTAs out there which I would
use ahead of qmail, especially if you're already
using sendmail, and as other posters have
pointed out, there are tools that work with
sendmail as it is, so there's no need to scrap
your MTA just to get clamav integration.
