Every email we send is causing qmail to send an email to log@servername.domain.com

How do I disable this?

Thank you, Chance


I created /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-log containing |exit 0

Hope this helps!


This performance is typically added by modifying the "extra.h"1 file before compilation.

You can modify the dot-qmail2 alias to send to null. You could also recompile QMAIL without this patch.

  • No problem, glad it helped! I love QMAIL. – Warner Feb 25 '10 at 16:21

On FreeBSD, if I put the following in /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-log or /home/vpopmail/domains/[defaultdomain.com]/.qmail-log

| /dev/null

I will get this error message:

deferral: /dev/null:_Permission_denied/

in maillog so for both files I use

| exit 0
