Input My Qmail Comments in here

:-) ok, yea qmail has this same ability using the .qmail files.. For example
I setup for my famialy a
set whitelist filtering system for QMail that only accepts email from people
they send email to or people
who autorize them selves as a real person and not a pice of spam mail )
All that was required to install this was to inject there email's into the
tmda program via there .qmail files, simple enough.. Autoresponders,
mailinglists, forwarders, virusscanners or whatever all work great..

At least you are looking at the abilities that other MTA's offer, this is
great for you.. Many people use what everyone else uses and dont ask
questions.. Getting your hands dirty, doing some reasearch, asking questions
and even setting up simulations is the best way to figure out what will
suite you better. Keep in mind the people who have already done this process
will be extremely biast for the MTA of there choice (I am extremely guilty
of this!) but in the end it is your choice and responsability...

Another Hint, visit and type in the name of the MTA you are
intrested in to see what 3rd party applications exist..
