I setup qmail on a fedora server. IÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™m pretty sure qmail is up and ready to receive emails, because when I run qmailctl stat I get the following
/service/qmail-send: up (pid 2085) 338534 seconds
/service/qmail-send/log: up (pid 2086) 338534 seconds
/service/qmail-smtpd: up (pid 25589) 1 seconds
/service/qmail-smtpd/log: up (pid 2083) 338534 seconds

I setup the qmail server by following the instructions on a website called lifewithqmail. I must have missed something, because I canÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™t find how to add qmail users. Somewhere in the instructions there is a way to send a test email, which worked. Then I added a user on the fedora machine using adduser. Next I used a windows xp machine and setup outlook express with the user I created on the fedora machine. In outlook expresses setup, I used the ip address of the qmail server to avoid any dns problems, and when I click on the send/receive button in outlook I get the following error
Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity.
So is there a different way to add a user to qmail, or is my assumption that itÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™s an add user problem incorrect?
