qmail is great, but the qmail-smtpd that comes with it is not.  Any
serious qmail admin in 2018 has to understand that, and replace it with
something else.  There are a few drop-in replacements for it, but sadly
qmail is dying out.  I think many of the former qmail admins have
migrated to postfix.

I'm currently using qmail + qpsmtpd.  Setting up qpsmtpd is several times
harder than setting up qmail.

Handling incoming mail is just *hard*.
