<h2>Building RPMs</h2>

<p>Starting with version 0.99, it is possible to build binary RPMs directly
from the source tarball, so there's no longer a need to provide a separate
set of source and binary RPMs. You will need RPM 3.0 or higher in order to
build a binary RPM. Execute the following command:</p>
<pre>   rpm -ta maildrop-2.9.3.tar.bz2</pre>

<p>The binary RPM will be built with a customized configuration (userdb,
GDBM, and quota enhancements enabled). Afterwards, simply execute <code>rpm
-i</code> to install it. That's it.</p>

<p>With RPM 4.1 (Red Hat 8.0) use the 'rpmbuild' command instead of rpm:
<tt>rpmbuild -ta maildrop-2.9.3.tar.bz2</tt></p>

<p>If you would like to change the RPM build options, move
<code>maildrop-2.9.3.tar.gz</code> to your <code>SOURCES</code>
directory, extract the file <code>maildrop.spec</code>, move it to your
<code>SPECS</code> directory, customize it if necessary, then build from the
spec file.</p>

<p><i>maildrop</i> includes documentation in HTML, as well as traditional man
pages. The HTML versions may also be found at <code><a
href="maildrop.html">http://www.courier-mta.org/maildrop/maildrop.html</a>.</code>
<br />

<h2>Installation</h2>
See <code><a href="INSTALL.html">INSTALL</a></code> for installation
information. If you are using an RPM-based Linux distribution, you can
install build a binary RPM directly from the source code.

<h2>Using maildrop with sendmail</h2>
Maildrop can be easily used as sendmail's local delivery agent, instead of
procmail. Here is the suggested entry for sendmail.cf, courtesy of Eric J.
