Qmail is not, nor has it been, actively supported for years. Personally,
I use Postfix. Is is far easier IMHO to configure that Sendmail and it
is actively supported. The developer regularly answers questions on the
Postfix forum.

Amavisd-new <http://www.ijs.si/software/amavisd/> works fine with
Postfix. You might want to stay away from
MailScanner <http://www.mailscanner.info/> though. The Postfix author
discourages its use and Postfix does not support it.

you should have sold it, and bought titanium.
