    Qmail would be the best alterantive as a mail daemon, it's stable, secure, and it would significantly reduce spam. For this reason, I feel that Cpanel should integrate Qmail. What do YOU think?

    I'm not sure how moving to qmail can directly cut spam... I would think most of the spam tools available can be applied to most open-source MTAs.

    But that said, I used qmail for six years before finally breaking down and moving up to cPanel. It was cake to work with, script against, and absolutely rock solid. In all that time I don't think I can recall a failure of qmail, and I never had to rebuild a mailbox or lost any mail, even with delivery volumes of 4,000 per hour.

    Yes, I'm a fan of qmail.

    (And wysiwygpro... what I wouldn't give to have both get added/updated. I mean, besides money obviously.)

    Go on, have a guess
    No need IMO and IMX. Exim is stable, secure, fast, easy to configure, easy to understand, small footprint, and it's easy to implement spam and virus scanning solutions into it

    I know this is an exceedingly old post but in to reply in chirpys' comment.

    yes, exim is just as you say but what about preference?

    I myself would enjoy the choice and since I use qmail for all my enterprise level clients it would be great if I didn't have to jerryrig qmail into cpanel

    Isn't qmail unmaintained?

    Doesn't the license disallow distributing patched binaries?

    From the customer standpoint, being able to support ones preferred mta would be grand. From a company standpoint, that much flexibility is a tech support nightmare :D

    Although I write that in jest, that is what one of my prior employers did (not my recommendation by any means).
