Hi David,
thanks for answering.

The problem is that I'm migrating a running server. My problems are:
- many domains already configured in the vpopmail DB, need to use those 
- need to code a company policies using perl (as explained in my 
previous email)

I think I can just plug sendmail in front of the running server and then 
the email using smtp to localhost:26 where qmail can be running.
I'm thinking running sendmail and procmail in the same machine, diferent
