Hi,

Maybe this is a simple question but don't have any knowledge at qmail either slackware linux. I have slackware linux server with qmail installed. There are many virtualhosts on this server. Now, my question is, how can i add a new qmail email account to one of these virtualhosts? To give you an idea about qmail working method, i copied and pasted the process list:

root       129  0.0  0.0  1200  360 ?        S    Aug11   0:04 tcpserver -H -R 0 110 /var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup
qmails     137  0.0  0.0  1260  472 ?        S    Aug11   0:48 qmail-send
qmaill     143  0.0  0.0  1196  476 ?        S    Aug11   0:22 splogger qmail
root       144  0.0  0.0  1184  360 ?        S    Aug11   0:05 qmail-lspawn |dot-forward .forward?./Maildir/
qmailr     145  0.0  0.0  1188  372 ?        S    Aug11   0:10 qmail-rspawn
qmailq     146  0.0  0.0  1180  392 ?        S    Aug11   0:06 qmail-clean
vpopmail   148  0.0  0.1  1736  712 ?        S    Aug11   0:07 /usr/local/bin/tcpserver -v -R -H -x /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb -c 20 -u 1022

Any help appreciated. Thanks!

# cd ~vpopmail/etc
# ./vadduser user@email.tld secret

In that directory is a whole bunch of nifty commands, including
./vdominfo = shows you virtual domain info
./vuserinfo = shows you virtual user info
.... and the ability to add/remove/modify virtual domains and users
