Sometimes, you may not have the time to learn how to build or fix a qmail server. In many cases, it's easier to hire an expert to build or fix the server for you.
This is a list of people who are members of the qmail-patch mailing list, or the larger qmail community, who are either actively looking for consulting work (like myself), or who occasionally take on side projects, and who know qmail well enough to offer their clients consulting services relating to qmail.
Please note that any business dealings you may enter into with these people should be handled off-list. In particular, discussions about pricing or payments should be handled via private email, telephone, or some other means. DO NOT talk about any pricing or payment issues on a mailing list.
With that said, if you've had a good experience with hiring somebody to work on your server, and want to share that on the list, by all means feel free. Just leave the financial details out of it.
With that said, here's the list.
I am the creator and maintainer of the combined patch, this web site, and the qmail-patch mailing list. I've been building and running ISP servers and networks since 1995, and have been using qmail on an almost daily basis since April 1998 (with "the big switch" from Sendmail to qmail done in June 1999.) I've done everything from small single-domain servers to state-wide ISP server networks. I've also been known to write custom patches for clients, most of which have ended up becoming part of the combined patch. My current client base is mostly in the Orlando area, however I do have some clients in other parts of the US, and in the UK.
Please note that I have just left a full-time-plus job, and as such I am actively looking for consulting work.
I am also looking for a full-time job, preferably in the Orlando area, but for the right money I am willing to move (within the US.) If you have an opening for a senior-level Linux System Administrator with a lot of qmail experience, you can download a copy of my resumé here.

If you'd like to have your own information listed here, you need to do three things:
Join the qmail-patch mailing list, if you haven't already done so.
Start asking good questions, answering other peoples' questions, making good suggestions for the patch, scripts, or web site... basically, demonstrate to the list that you DO know what you're talking about when it comes to qmail and system administration.
Send me an email, asking to be listed here.
Don't ask on the list- all that will do is show me that you can't follow directions (such as the one you're reading right now.)
And please don't ask unless you have an established reputation, either on my list or in the larger qmail community, as somebody who actually knows what they're doing. I've had to clean up after too many people who called themselves "qmail experts" but didn't know it very well. The point of this page is that the people here know their stuff.
While I do have the final say on whether or not you get listed, there are other people on the list (for the most part, the other people who are already listed on this page) whose opinions I take into account when making this decision. To be honest, my goal is to have a good list of people here. I'm not trying to shut anybody out, but I do want to make sure that the people on this list DO actually know what they're talking about.
