+Here's how to set up the qmail groups and the qmail users.
+
+On some systems there are commands that make this easy. Solaris and
+Linux:
+
+ # groupadd nofiles
+ # useradd -g nofiles -d /var/qmail/alias alias
+ # useradd -g nofiles -d /var/qmail qmaild
+ # useradd -g nofiles -d /var/qmail qmaill
+ # useradd -g nofiles -d /var/qmail qmailp
+ # groupadd qmail
+ # useradd -g qmail -d /var/qmail qmailq
+ # useradd -g qmail -d /var/qmail qmailr
+ # useradd -g qmail -d /var/qmail qmails
+
+FreeBSD 2.2:
+
+ # pw groupadd nofiles
+ # pw useradd alias -g nofiles -d /var/qmail/alias -s /nonexistent
+ # pw useradd qmaild -g nofiles -d /var/qmail -s /nonexistent
+ # pw useradd qmaill -g nofiles -d /var/qmail -s /nonexistent
+ # pw useradd qmailp -g nofiles -d /var/qmail -s /nonexistent
+ # pw groupadd qmail
+ # pw useradd qmailq -g qmail -d /var/qmail -s /nonexistent
+ # pw useradd qmailr -g qmail -d /var/qmail -s /nonexistent
+ # pw useradd qmails -g qmail -d /var/qmail -s /nonexistent
+
+BSDI 2.0:
+
+ # addgroup nofiles
+ # adduser -g nofiles -H/var/qmail/alias -G,,, -s/dev/null -P'*' alias
+ # adduser -g nofiles -H/var/qmail -G,,, -s/dev/null -P'*' qmaild
+ # adduser -g nofiles -H/var/qmail -G,,, -s/dev/null -P'*' qmaill
+ # adduser -g nofiles -H/var/qmail -G,,, -s/dev/null -P'*' qmailp
+ # addgroup qmail
+ # adduser -g qmail -H/var/qmail -G,,, -s/dev/null -P'*' qmailq
+ # adduser -g qmail -H/var/qmail -G,,, -s/dev/null -P'*' qmailr
+ # adduser -g qmail -H/var/qmail -G,,, -s/dev/null -P'*' qmails
+
+AIX:
+
+ # mkgroup -A nofiles
+ # mkuser pgrp=nofiles home=/var/qmail/alias shell=/bin/true alias
+ # mkuser pgrp=nofiles home=/var/qmail shell=/bin/true qmaild
+ # mkuser pgrp=nofiles home=/var/qmail shell=/bin/true qmaill
+ # mkuser pgrp=nofiles home=/var/qmail shell=/bin/true qmailp
+ # mkgroup -A qmail
+ # mkuser pgrp=qmail home=/var/qmail shell=/bin/true qmailq
+ # mkuser pgrp=qmail home=/var/qmail shell=/bin/true qmailr
+ # mkuser pgrp=qmail home=/var/qmail shell=/bin/true qmails
+
+On other systems, you will have to edit /etc/group and /etc/passwd
+manually. First add two new lines to /etc/group, something like
+
+ qmail:*:2107:
+ nofiles:*:2108:
+
+where 2107 and 2108 are different from the other gids in /etc/group.
+Next (using vipw) add six new lines to /etc/passwd, something like
+
+ alias:*:7790:2108::/var/qmail/alias:/bin/true
+ qmaild:*:7791:2108::/var/qmail:/bin/true
+ qmaill:*:7792:2108::/var/qmail:/bin/true
+ qmailp:*:7793:2108::/var/qmail:/bin/true
+ qmailq:*:7794:2107::/var/qmail:/bin/true
+ qmailr:*:7795:2107::/var/qmail:/bin/true
+ qmails:*:7796:2107::/var/qmail:/bin/true
+
+where 7790 through 7796 are _new_ uids, 2107 is the qmail gid, and 2108
+is the nofiles gid. Make sure you use the nofiles gid for qmaild,
+qmaill, qmailp, and alias, and the qmail gid for qmailq, qmailr, and
+qmails.
