qmail (>> 1.06),
Description: handles qmail forwarding according to a cdb database
It can create forwarding databases from a sendmail-style /etc/aliases or
from user-oriented virtual-domain tables.
fastforward supports external mailing lists, stored in a binary format for
fast access. It has a tool to convert sendmail-style include files into
fastforward is more reliable than sendmail. sendmail can't deal with long
aliases, or deeply nested aliases, or deeply nested include files;
fastforward has no limits other than memory. sendmail can produce corrupted
alias files if the system crashes; fastforward is crashproof.
fastforward's database-building tools are much faster than sendmail's
newaliases. Even better, fastforward deliveries don't pause while the
database is being rebuilt.
fastforward does not support insecure sendmail-style program deliveries from
include files; you can use qmail's secure built-in mechanisms instead.
