Installing Maildrop

Maildrop is a replacement for your local mail delivery agent. I have configured maildrop (in my previous qmail installs) to filter all Spam related emails to go directly to the users Maildir/Spam folder. This no longer works. We now just need to install maildrop for qmail-scanner support. Mails are now filtered via dovecot 2. For more information, please see http://www.courier-mta.org/maildrop/

Lets install maildrop:


# cd /usr/ports/mail/maildrop
# make install clean

Make sure the following option is checked:

[X] AUTH_VCHKPW  popmail/vchkpw support

We need to run a quick fix for vdeliverquota


# ln -s /usr/local/bin/maildrop-deliverquota /usr/local/bin/deliverquota

You can now proceed to the next step!
