I got this error:

[root@relay qmail-smtpd]# exec /usr/local/bin/softlimit -m 2000000 /usr/local/bin/tcpserver -v -R -l "relay.abc.com" -x /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb -c "20" -u 501 -g 500 0 smtp /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd 2>&1
tcpserver: fatal: unable to figure out port number for smtp

[root@relay qmail-smtpd]# telnet localhost smtp
Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

Who can give me the correct script to start the qmail-smtpd service?
