Hi. This is the qmail-send program at xxxx
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

recompile qmail-local.c or qmail-send.c, changing the messages which is hard coded in the source; follow these instructions carefully (http://cr.yp.to/proto/qsbmf.txt), since the message format is strict

>I want add "TEXT"  to all outgoing mails.
where do you want to add it? in the body, at the end? In the subject?

Thank you for the reply,

In the BODY and END at the msgs.
Then, you should definetely not do it, because you would break the pgp signature that lies at the end of a message

I don't use qmail, but I found this article: http://forum.qmailrocks.org/showpost.php?p=11968
I agree with ai_ja_nai, that you really shouldn't do that (PGP, smime, etc).

I assume that you want to ad a disclaimer to your e-mail.

The software to use is alter-mime. I have used it successfully with Postfix at a couple of sites, but not with q-mail.

This post forum seems to indicate that it works with qmail too:


You can google for the words "qmail disclaimer altermime" for more info.

Hope it helps
