Apache::Qpsmtpd(3) a mod_perl-2 connection handler for qpsmtpd


Listen smtp
AcceptFilter smtp none
## "smtp" and the AcceptFilter are required for Linux, FreeBSD
## with apache >= 2.1.5, for others it doesn't hurt. See also
## http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#acceptfilter
## and http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mpm_common.html#listen
LoadModule perl_module modules/mod_perl.so
use lib qw( /path/to/qpsmtpd/lib );
use Apache::Qpsmtpd;
$ENV{QPSMTPD_CONFIG} = "/path/to/qpsmtpd/config";
<VirtualHost _default_:25>
PerlModule Apache::Qpsmtpd
PerlProcessConnectionHandler Apache::Qpsmtpd
# can specify this in config/plugin_dirs if you wish:
PerlSetVar qpsmtpd.plugin_dirs /path/to/qpsmtpd/plugins
PerlSetVar qpsmtpd.loglevel 4


This module implements a mod_perl/apache 2.0 connection handler that turns Apache into an SMTP server using Qpsmtpd.

It also allows you to set single-valued config options (such as loglevel, as seen above) using "PerlSetVar" in httpd.conf.

This module should be considered beta software as it is not yet widely tested. However it is currently the fastest way to run Qpsmtpd, so if performance is important to you then consider this module.


Probably a few. Make sure you test your plugins carefully.

The Apache scoreboard (/server-status/) mostly works and shows connections, but could do with some enhancements specific to SMTP.
