Hi all

Im getting so stuck with this qmail installation, im stuck at the part where im about to configure vpopmail.

After you download and unzip this is the step:

cd vpopmail-5.4.13

./configure --enable-logging=p --enable-auth-module=mysql --disable-passwd --enable-clear-passwd --disable-many-domains --enable-auth-logging --enable-sql-logging --enable-valias --disable-mysql-limits

make && make install-strip

The first error I get is:

configure: error: Unable to find your qmail-newu file, specify --enable-qmail-newu.

Then I do a locate and then find this file in /usr/srv/qmail/qmail-1.03/

After that it then asks for newu

Now I did a locate and there is no newmrh

This is the main problem I am having,  errpr: Unable to find your qmail-newmrh file, specify --enable-qmail-newmrh

Im getting desperate now, ive looked at google for hours and nothing seems to match.

Anyone with knowledge of this file or could send me or advice please help :)
